Connecting People to Nature

by Rebecca Beavers '93

"Being able to tell a story that people can relate to, whether it’s Stonewall National Monument, whether we are going out in a National Park and I am trying to explain processes from a hurricane, relating to people, that connection, on a personal level, is what’s so important and I think that is where we make our difference."

Rebecca Beavers '93 (Williams Mystic '91) lives in Denver, CO and works as a Coastal Geologist for the National Parks Service. We chat about her job, connecting parks and education, her efforts supporting the transgender and gender diverse community, and what it means to connect with people.

Interview is part of the on-the-road 'We the Purple' Williams College alumni conversations held during Ephs on the Mooove in July 2021. Explore more conversations. 'We the Purple' concept and flags designed and donated by Penny Brewer '76, inspired initially as part of the class of 1976's 35th reunion celebration in 2010.
