Liz Skree is the communications manager for the Mississippi River Delta Restoration project at Environmental Defense Fund (EDF). Working as part of the broader Restore the Mississippi River Delta Campaign, Liz manages Delta Dispatches, the campaign’s blog and e-newsletter publication about national and local efforts to restore the Mississippi River Delta. Liz also manages EDF’s Restoration and Resilience blog, social media strategy and web presence. She is based in Washington, DC.

Prior to coming to EDF, Liz worked as a forest policy intern at American Forests, a national nonprofit conservation organization working to protect and restore forests around the world. She also interned with the International Programs section of the U.S. Forest Service, working on policy and outreach.

“I’ve always loved the outdoors. My family is really into camping, and when I was a kid, I wanted to be a park ranger when I grew up!” says Liz. “This interest in the natural world continued in college, where my environmental studies classes taught me the many reasons why we need to protect the environment. I am thankful to work at an organization like EDF—working every day to defend and restore important ecosystems and helping others learn about what we do and how they can get involved.”

Liz holds a B.A. in Political Science from Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota.
