As an ORISE Climate Change Communications Fellow, Morgan Lawrence translates climate science and develops communication materials related to climate change in forestry, agriculture, and rangelands. She is currently developing a climate change curriculum for the Alaskan chapter of the Future Farmers of America, synthesizing work on climate-fire interactions, and integrating Traditional Ecological Knowledge into climate change communication. Prior to working at the Northwest Climate Hub, Morgan worked for four years as a wildland firefighter throughout the American West, and for three years as an environmental educator in Rocky Mountain and Denali National Parks. Morgan recently obtained a Master's of Science degree in Environmental Humanities from the University of Utah, where she researched the effects of anthropogenic alterations and climate change on the Great Salt Lake ecosystem.
