Resilience Communications is owned and operated by environmental educator and communications specialist Elizabeth LoGiudice. Liz earned her bachelor’s degree from the State University of New York at Albany and a Master of Science from Green Mountain College in Vermont. She has been providing education and resources on aquatic ecology, watershed protection, and climate change adaptation for nearly twenty years.
Liz began her career as a member of the Hudson River Valley Americorps, working at the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation’s Five Rivers Education Center. She served as Education Coordinator at Greene County Soil & Water Conservation District, managing the Cohotate Preserve Education Center on the Hudson River, and at the E.N. Huyck Preserve and Biological Research Station, a 2,000 acre preserve in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains.
Liz worked for over a decade as a natural resources educator at Cornell University Cooperative Extension’s Agroforestry Resource Center; providing education and producing materials on topics related to the role of forests in protecting water quality, stream science and watershed protection, and aquatic wildlife conservation. She helped to manage the Siuslaw Model Forest, a New York City Department of Environmental Protection demonstration forest.
Liz has worked in the field of climate change adaptation since the historic flooding in the Northeastern U.S. caused by Tropical Storm Irene in 2011. She managed the Hudson Estuary Watershed Resilience Project (now the Climate Resilience Partnership), a regional resource for flood-impacted communities, from 2012 to 2016.
Over the course of her career, Liz has worked in a wide array educational modalities – from leading nature-based experiences to providing presentations, facilitating workshops and producing written, graphic and audio materials. She has a wealth of strategic planning and project management skills and seeks opportunities to contribute to innovative collaborations that aim to protect the natural environment.
Liz has a keen interest in audio storytelling as a means of conveying environmental messages. She has been a contributor to Northeast Public Radio’s 51% and the Yale Climate Connections podcast, and is the producer of the Echolocation podcast. As a lifelong musician, she has a passion for using sound and music to enhance understanding of human impacts on natural systems and to motivate action to ensure the long-term sustainability of our planet. A recent project is Cod Songs, which uses sonified data to compose songs revealing the plight of codfish living in low-oxygen areas of the Baltic Sea.
