Morgan Lawrence

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.
