Next Generation Advisory Council Member

Aaron is an aspiring environmental advocate originally from New York City. A rising second year law student, he is currently pursuing a dual J.D. and Master of Environmental Management at Yale Law School and the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies. Before graduate school, he worked to help communities around Massachusetts prepare for the impacts of climate change at the grassroots nonprofit Communities Responding to Extreme Weather (CREW).

Aaron is also passionate about conservation and long-distance hiking. As part of a senior thesis project, he hiked ~1,100 miles along the Appalachian Trail from West Virginia to Maine, studying how an increase in use has affected the trail’s ecology and social dynamics. He has also section-hiked portions of the Continental Divide Trail in Montana and Wyoming.
