My name is Lindsay Phenix and this is my second summer as a Senior Harbor Educator with Save the Harbor/Save the Bay. Last summer I was responsible for conducting healthy outdoor activities on the harbor islands as part of the All Access Boston Harbor program. This summer, I will continue in that role as well as contribute as the artist in residence. I have tons of great ideas, and can't wait to get back on the harbor to see what this summer has in store!
My love for the ocean began with my summers spent on Cape Cod. Thanks to my dad and grandfather I became fearless when it came to exploring the waters and shores just down the road from our beach house. Before graduating from Saint Michael's College in 2014, I had the opportunity to study abroad on the Caribbean Island of South Caicos (located in the Turks & Caicos Islands). There I studied with the School for Field Studies conducting research on the island’s marine life and marine protected areas. Additionally, I learned about the many conservation efforts taking place to protect the fragile reef ecosystems from over fishing and global warming.
It's safe to assume that I love everything about the ocean and its creatures.
Fun Fact: I love sharks and I like to paint them!
Orientation week was amazing, and it was awesome to see so many familiar faces mixed in with the new ones. Getting back out on George's Island was a sweet homecoming, despite the dark tunnel seeming darker than I remembered. I'm really looking forward to getting to know the new staffers and I'm counting down the hours until Monday!
