Alison Schwartz

Alison is excited to be one of the HAF Connected Communities Fellows with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. In 2020, Alison graduated from the University of Vermont with a Bachelor’s of Science in Environmental Science, a focus on Wildlife Conservation and Ecology, and a minor in economics. While studying abroad in Tanzania with the School for Field Studies, Alison discovered a passion for the human dimensions of conservation, and since then has gained experiences in human-wildlife conflict resolution, environmental education, public affairs, outreach, and community engagement. As a Park Ranger intern at the Harris Neck National Wildlife Refuge for over a year, Alison served as a liaison with the Direct Descendants of the Harris Neck Community and aided in the Urban Wildlife Conservation Program, along with other visitor services initiatives. The experience solidified her intent on pursuing a career with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as they strive to expand the benefits of the refuge system while conserving valuable natural resources.
