Meghan Wilson is a senior in the Land Systems track of Earth Systems focusing on environmental education and community development. Growing up in Westerville, Ohio, her relationship to the environment was contextualized through its connections to family meals, land history, and the impromptu science lab of her backyard. A gap year before college led her to Morocco and Guam, where she studied Arabic, volunteered with a citizen science project on coral reef monitoring, and solidified her passion for environmental science. Since coming to Stanford, her interest in growing food has become the connection point for how she hopes to engage the public in better stewardship of the environment. She spent her first college summer at Stanford Sierra Camp, where she led preschoolers on adventures around Fallen Leaf Lake and spent weekends hiking & camping in the Sierras. She spent her sophomore summer at City Blossoms in Washington, D.C., where she worked with a youth entrepreneurship program on urban farming, and this year she is continuing to explore the role of youth programs in urban agriculture through her senior thesis. Meghan’s favorite quarter at Stanford was spent in Hawai‘i on the Wrigley Field Program, which she’ll probably never stop telling stories about. On campus she spends her free time nurturing new plants at the educational farm, planning the next AMENDS conference, or testing out new ingredients in bread recipes.
