Alexandra Fiske is a sophomore at Oakland Technical High School and the founder of the Oakland Tech Ecology Club. Alexandra began volunteering with FOSC in the Summer of 2020 to reconnect with Beaconsfield Canyon, her childhood playground, and learn about ecological work in her community.
As a volunteer in Beaconsfield Canyon, Alexandra works to remove invasives like Ailanthus and Himalayan Blackberry, scatter native seeds, and plant native plants from the FOSC nursery. In addition to her weekly volunteering with Wendy Tokuda, Alexandra has been exploring the watershed and forest bathing to de-stress from daily life during COVID.
As Alexandra looks to the future, she sees herself pursuing environmental science as a researcher, policymaker, or engineer.
Thank you, Alexandra, for your commitment and leadership in the watershed!
