08 May Introduction (Julia Edwards)
Hello! An introduction about me! (Julia Edwards)
Hello everyone! My name is Julia Edwards. I am currently pursuing my degree in Environmental Studies with a minor in Geography. I was a law enforcement ranger for about five years and loved being able to protect the local natural resources and people who visited. Another large part of my job that I loved was education. When I decided to leave my previous job, I knew I wanted to pursue environmental education and programming. That is why Fish and Feathers is a dream come true! I will be working at the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. I am super excited to be working at a park I grew up visiting.
I am also an artist and love nature photography. I am a Shawnee tribal nation member and a fancy shawl pow wow dancer. A large part of my culture growing up was learning the importance of our relationship to the Earth. I think Environmental education can change the world.
Below are some of my photographs! I am looking forward to sharing more of my photography this summer from the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
