Ciara Fagan

Engagement Intern: Fall 2020/Spring 2021

Ciara Fagan was a ten-year-old growing up in New Jersey when she declared that her future career would be, “environmentalist”. Since then she has worked towards this goal through attending marine biology camps, fighting for compost at her high school, attending climate marches, and now interning with Audubon. Ciara is in her fourth year at UVM studying Environmental Studies with a minor in Human Development and Family Studies. As her view of what being an “environmentalist” has shifted and evolved, Ciara has gained interest in being an environmental educator and specifically exploring integrating environmental education within the community and strengthened sense of place, as well as reaching audiences that have not traditionally been included in the environmental education field and broadening this accessibility.

Ciara is excited for to opportunity to put her interests and enthusiasm to work at Audubon this spring and looks forward to learning even more about what roles environmental education can play in building community. In her free time Ciara can be found birding, baking, doing crosswords, hiking, and painting.
