Women In Science: Reaching Local Communities with Equity, Access, & Inclusion in Environmental Education

March 9, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm CST


Join DEC’s Hudson River Estuary Program’s Free Virtual Winter Speaker Series!

Meet and learn from scientists, community leaders, and environmental educators who work at the intersection of research, education, and environmental and social justice. Engage in discussions about water quality research, dam removals, field-based learning, and overcoming barriers and challenges in the field of science and education.

Eli Caref was born and raised in the concrete playgrounds of Brooklyn, New York, and throughout her childhood believed that nature was always “somewhere else.” Through her years in Environmental Education in and around New York City, she now knows that wildlife is everywhere you look, and her goal is to help all of her students find it in their own backyards. Eli will speak about her journey into this career path, working with local schools and students, and how bringing more equity and inclusion into our field is the best way to really work with and in our communities.
