Laura Hilberg, M.S.
Laura supports the Awareness to Action and State of Adaptation programs at EcoAdapt by conducting research and analysis on a number of projects, preparing for and conducting workshops with other team members, and offering assistance on any other task that needs to be done! She takes a special interest in translating technical concepts into materials that can be easily understood by any target audience, and hopes to engage others in a conversation about climate change by connecting the issue with each communityís identity, beliefs, and values.

Prior to joining EcoAdapt in 2015, Laura was part of a team developing the Massachusetts Climate Action Tool, which provides access to information about climate impacts, fish and wildlife vulnerability, and adaptation strategies and actions on a spatial scale that will be relevant to local policymakers, conservation organizations, state and municipal agencies, and landowners. She also assisted the Northeast Climate Science Center with the development of a report on regional climate change information to assist states in the Northeast and Midwest with updating their State Wildlife Action Plans in 2015. In addition to climate change, Laura has a background in sustainable agriculture and local food systems, and loves learning about anything related to birds. She received her undergraduate degree from Mount Holyoke College, and a Masterís in Conservation Biology from Antioch University New England. Laura lives in western Massachusetts, and spends her free time birding, gardening, reading, and singing classical music in a community choir.
