Science Education Intern

Eliza Baker-Wacks

Eliza was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, but has always had a passion for Maine since she began attending summer camp here at the age of 8!  She is now an Environmental Policy Major at Colby College, where she has absolutely loved spending the past three years.  Outside of the classroom Eliza is a member of the Varsity Swim team and is a part of the Student Government organization, but her real passion is spending time outdoors and sharing it with others!  The past two summers she worked for a non-profit in Los Angeles building school gardens and teaching kids how to grow and manage them!  She hopes to educate the younger generation about the importance of the environment and environmental conservation so that beautiful places can be protected!  She is also an avid knitter (of only square-shaped things), hiker, and a lover of the water and cannot wait to explore the island this summer!
