London Bernier | Big Sky Watershed Corps Member

Born and raised on the coast of Maine, London was lucky to spend her time exploring the rocky beaches, lakes, and mountains of the Northeast. She received a B.A. in environmental studies and statistics from St. Lawrence University in Upstate New York. After dabbling in many areas of environmental conservation during school and work experiences, from global amphibian decline to renewable energy in New Zealand, London graduated and spent a summer working with the Henry’s Fork Foundation in Idaho. This work sparked a deeper interest in watershed management and its collaborative nature, and led her to the Big Sky Watershed Corps and Ruby Valley Conservation District. In her free time, you’ll find London outside Nordic skiing, doing yoga, trail running, beekeeping, or enjoying a good book.
