“I have noticed how important public involvement and support is to having a healthy relationship with a river, thus I wanted to get involved with an organization that is so devoted to their work to keep the river healthy while also ensuring access to plentiful, clean water for their community.”
– Isabella Vendramin
Hailing from the banks of the Hudson River in upstate New York, Isabella Vendramin believes that rivers are vital to both the ecosystems and the communities they run through. A rising senior studying Environmental Science at Colgate University, Vendramin offers a background in sustainability and hopes to gain experience with community-based conservation work through her internship. She is excited to garner support to permanently protect the Gallatin, and other rivers in Montana, through the Wild and Scenic rivers system and to assist with extensive watershed monitoring.
