Carly hails from the ruggedly beautiful metropolis of Chugiak, Alaska, located just to the north of Anchorage. Carly comes to SCS at the end of a jam-packed gap year she took after graduating high school. She's spent time volunteering abroad, shadowing a state representative, and working with the Southeast Alaska Conservation Council. She's also spent plenty of time working with the Alaska Center, as part of Alaska Youth for Environmental Action, and as part of the summer canvass team focused on Stand for Salmon and Pebble Mine. Now, she's joins SCS as our Eco-Advocacy and Communications Intern through Alaska Conservation Foundation's Ted Smith Conservation Internship Program.
Carly is euphoric to be in Sitka, and to experience the best of cross-trail conviviality, commercial fishing, community, and classical music before she leaves Alaska to attend Pitzer College in the fall.
