Hayley Hartman — Environmental Educator
Hayley is originally from Carroll County, Maryland where she first began her journey into the environmental field. Years were spent playing sports, hiking, fishing and anything else “outdoorsy”! She spent her summers in Ocean City, which led her to enjoy the way of life here on the Eastern Shore.
She graduated in 2018 from Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland with degrees in Environmental Studies and Anthropology. There, Hayley was able to conduct research on sea level rise and how Eastern Shore residents perceive it. Ultimately, she wrote her senior thesis based on the results and connected them to how people’s sense of place ties into their perception of sea level rise. In her free time, she loves to surf, fish, run or relax at Assateague Island!
