“Hi! My name is Erika Looman, and I’m from Shelburne Massachusetts. I currently attend St. Lawrence University where I am studying Geology. Prior to SLU, I studied Environmental Conservation at Greenfield Community College which helped me make connections between the outdoors as a natural classroom and my favorite activities which include Nordic and alpine skiing, riding bikes, and hiking. I am excited to spend the summer with the Squam Lakes Conservation Society and surround myself with likeminded people who are passionate about conserving the abundant natural resources that the lakes region offers while beginning my career in conservation.”
