Meet Our Intern Class of 2018: Caitlin Phillips

Dozens of interns have worked with The Land Conservancy of New Jersey, and they all share a common goal of  environmental well-being.

Caitlin is a graduate of Drew University, where she double-majored in English and Environmental Studies & Sustainability. She was part of the Civic Scholars, who helped local communities with various projects and service hours. When Caitlin is not interning with The Land Conservancy and the Borough of Madison, she enjoys photography, hiking, and baking

During her time at The Land Conservancy, Caitlin has worked on  ERIs and OSRPs for Madison, Teaneck, Wantage, and Verona, and assisted with grant writing. “I chose to intern here because I like getting involved with towns to see how they want to improve their communities, and to see all the different way to preserve and conserve land,” said Caitlin.

 “I am headed to Villanova for my Masters in English this August, and then I will start finding new ways to engage people in environmental work and sustainability. Not a lot of people realize how issues with the environment influence or are influenced by them, so my goal is to effectively communicate why environmental work matters and what everyone can individually do to make a positive difference.”
