Liz Myers holds a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering with a minor in Environmental and Plant Biology from Ohio University, where she is currently wrapping up her masters thesis studying how to turn acid mine drainage into paint pigments. Originally from the hills of southeast Ohio, Liz recently relocated to the northeast Ohio area and joined the Tinkers Creek Watershed Partners to connect with her newfound home’s watershed. Being early-career and having recently started at EnviroScience, Liz hopes to continue to positively impact local streams and wetlands through her work. When Liz isn’t working, she is hiking, foraging, and reading as much as she can (hopefully more fun and less academic papers soon!).
