Emily Dutton

Lead Educator

Emily (she/her) grew up in suburban Massachusetts spending the first years of her life climbing trees, frolicking through the “forest” (of ten trees) in her backyard, and playing in the stream down at the end of her street. As she got older these were traded for sports and theater.

She got back into the forest with her degree in Environmental Conservation and Sustainability at UNH. While working at the Seacoast Science Center, she realized an unknown passion for education.

After graduating, she started an AmeriCorps term in the Pacific Northwest that focused on stream restoration with little glimmers of education throughout.

She moved back to New Hampshire to start a master’s program at UNH in marine biology. After a year in her program, she decided to take a break from her studies to pursue her passion for environmental education. She is excited to join the White Pine team as a Lead Educator.

Besides education, she loves going for walks in the woods, becoming a bird nerd, climbing trees, painting, singing, drinking tea, and eating copious amounts of fruit.
