Science Building, Room 2105, MUN campus

Elizabeth (Liz) Andres will talk about our project, “Connecting New Canadians and Nature”. NatureNL secured funding for this pilot project and Liz served as the project coordinator. We collaborated with the Association for New Canadians and the Grand Concourse Authority to plan, carry out, and evaluate activities tailored specifically for newcomers to the province. Liz will provide an overview of the project, a comprehensive evaluation of the project, and will discuss the future of similar programming in St. John’s.

Elizabeth Andres is a passionate conservationist with an interest in the human dimensions of natural resource management. She received her M.Sc. in Conservation Leadership from Colorado State, where she approached research on resource access and community participation from a systems perspective. Elizabeth currently works as a research assistant in MUN’s Department of Sociology, and continues to seek out opportunities to utilize social science to better understand people and their connection to the environment.
