Keller Science Action Center
Iza is a Conservation Ecologist working in the greater Chicago Wilderness area and concentrating many of her efforts in the Calumet Region. She works to conserve high quality remnant habitats and species that reside within them, as well as bring back the health and resilience to those areas that have heavily been affected by urban sprawl and industrial development. She spends a lot of time thinking how restoration efforts are influenced by climate change, what specific techniques can be used to pre adapt conservation efforts to climate change and what collective and individual actions we can take to ameliorate the effects of it.
Iza is plant, food and travel lover; she also enjoys spending time with her family. As a matter of fact, some of her favorite things to do are to travel with family to areas in Chicagoland to look at cool plants and later support local economies by getting good food.
