Intern - 2021
Name: Celia Parry
Education/Professional Background: Sophomore at Pomona College studying Politics and Biology
Hometown: Portland, OR
What brought you to Crag?: I grew up going on hikes in the Columbia Gorge, and Oregon’s natural beauty was what initially instilled in me a desire to protect the environment. Law and biology both fascinate me, and I see environmental advocacy as a way to combine those two passions. I’m hoping to pursue environmental law in the future, and I think Crag will be an exciting place to explore what it would mean to be an environmental lawyer.
What are your environmental/legal interests?: I’m interested in environmental law and policy overall, but especially when it’s related to environmental justice, wildfires, wildlife, and/or the ocean. I also enjoy thinking about political theory and constitutional law.
What will your work focus on while at Crag?: I’m working on projects related to wildfire and the Oregon Forest Resources Institute (OFRI).
