Lucy Gonzalez

Paulson Initiative Intern

My name is Lucy Gonzalez, and I am a rising junior (class of 2024) at Wellesley College. I am an Architecture and Environmental Studies Major. My interest in nature and the environment began at a discovery day camp called The Nature Institute (TNI) in Godfrey, Illinois.  For the past eight summers, I have been a camp counselor at TNI. I have also interned at the St. Louis Science Center GROW exhibit. Through these experiences, I have developed many interests and curiosities about the natural world and the impacts of human activity on the environment.  I am interested in sustainability and human interaction with the environment, as well as environmental education. I am excited to be interning with the Paulson Ecology of Place Initiative this summer and to spend time on the Wellesley landscape. This summer I hope to explore my interests and develop a deeper connection with the Wellesley College campus.
