My name is Calla Beers and I am majoring in environmental science as well as art and design at the University of Michigan and will receive my degrees this spring. While both programs provide a comprehensive curriculum, my emphasis is on water resource management and photography and illustration respectively. Growing up in the Great Lakes area has inspired my passion for nature, particularly aquatic environments that are the most impacted by climate change. I hope to use the tools I have gained at Michigan to bring attention to anthropogenic environmental challenges and continue exploring and sharing my curiosity about our environment. It is a privilege to be able to contribute to and explore the intrinsic scientific, historic, and aesthetic value of our natural world.
