Nadia Harvieux (she/her) joined Finger Lakes Institute (FLI) in 2013 and manages environmental and watershed-focused education programs for a wide range of diverse audiences. As a passionate advocate for place-based experiential learning, Nadia designs and leads innovative programs to engage students and adults in participatory community science addressing local environmental issues. FLI’s K-12 programs include the Finger Lakes Youth Climate Summit, Science on Seneca, the Finger Lakes Regional Stream Monitoring Network, supporting STEAM opportunities for Geneva’s Youth through Geneva 2030, and providing professional development for educators.
