Some of the projects that most energize her involve protecting the Okefenokee Swamp in south Georgia and threatened sea turtles off Georgia’s coast. “The barrier islands and coastal marshlands there are spectacular,” she says. As a Sewanee student, she discovered another special spot, the Cumberland Plateau in eastern Tennessee.
“I am passionate about the work and feel lucky to get the opportunity to contribute to SELC’s mission to protect our region’s air, water, climate, wildlife, and public lands,” says Megan, who grew up in Tallahassee. “SELC’s work to protect our region’s natural resources is particularly important to me as the mom of two young children.
