Grace Bushong - Crag 2024 Summer Associate

Holland Burd

2024 Summer Development Intern

  • Pronouns: she/her

  • Education: St. Mary’s Academy

  • Hometown: Portland, OR

  • What brought you to Crag? I have always been passionate about environmental justice and only recently have begun to learn about environmental law. I found Crag through lots of google research and was so excited when I realized that they offered summer internship positions.

  • What are your environmental/legal interests? I would like to follow a career in environmental advocacy. I don’t have very much experience working within environmental organizations, so I hope to gain a foundation of knowledge this summer at Crag.

  • What will your work focus on while at Crag? I will work as a Development Intern this summer.

  • Favorite place to recreate or be in nature: I was born in Brooklyn, New York and have always loved running in parks in NYC. While I still love running in nature and parks here in Portland, I miss the bubble of the park within the city. My favorite park in New York was Prospect Park, and in Portland my favorite park is Forest Park.

  • Hobbies: I love to read, bake, and play volleyball. My favorite baked goods to make (and eat!) are cookies. I also love to go for runs and walks with my dog, Bailey.

  • Favorite Quote: “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about dancing in the rain” –Vivian Greene
