Veronica Ross

UVM Conservation Intern
Veronica Ross is currently a junior at the University of Vermont studying the environment. She’s from Columbus, Ohio and enjoys crafting, playing music, hiking, swimming, and exploring. Her appreciation for birds and the natural world blossomed during her time at the Outdoor Academy in North Carolina during high school. She later returned during college as an outdoor educator during summer break and taught classes that helped children build relationships with nature. For the past year, she has been a part of the UVM Fellowship for Restoration Ecologies and Cultures where she found a passion for conserving and restoring landscapes and ecosystems. Veronica is also a Teaching Assistant for NR 002, Natural History and Human Ecology, at the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources where she leads weekly outdoor labs. Some of her current interests include animal tracking and plant propagation. Recently, Veronica has taken a lot of interest in Pileated Woodpeckers and spends her free time looking for signs of them and learning from them.
