Anna is a high school junior in Lake Bluff, IL. She has participated in Roots & Shoots for four years.. During this time her favorite project was building Mason bee houses for an outdoor conservation classroom at my middle school. It was especially meaningful because it involved an education component, and she was able to speak to over 400 students about the importance of pollinators. As a member of student council, is a part of an environmental stewardship camp called Center for Conservation Leadership, and loves to sing and play the piano. When she is not doing these activities, you can always find her swinging her racket on the varsity tennis courts.
