Megan Bailiff


Washington, D.C. & Florence, OR

Megan grew up in Wisconsin, exploring lakes and streams.

She studied limnology and freshwater ecology in college, and went on to earn an M.S. in biological oceanography from the University of Hawaii. She has worked with organizations large and small including The Coastal Society, Surfrider Foundation, University of South California’s Sea Grant Program, and more to protect our Earth’s resources. In 1989, she worked for Friends of the Earth in Washington state and helped start the effort to remove the Elwha dam, which finally came down in 2014. She is excited to be focusing her energy again on freshwater conservation.
