Earth Day with Kaylee Delcid


You are invited to a presentation by Kaylee Delcid, “Desert Garden for Plants and People,” on Friday, April 23, 2021 from 10:00 - 11:00 a.m.

Kaylee graduated from ASU in Fall 2020 with a degree in Conservation Biology and Ecology. While at ASU, Kaylee started a student chapter of the Audubon Society - Sun Devil Audubon Student Conservation Chapter - and is currently assisting the Tempe campus with designing and installing a pollinator garden. Kaylee wants to help people learn how to plant their own pollinator gardens to support the dwindling number of pollinators in the Arizona desert.

In addition, she is currently interning with the Sonoran Audubon Society and is volunteering at Liberty Wildlife.

She was a student at EMCC from 2017-2019. While here, she helped to start EMCC’s Animal Ambassador program and participated in carrying out burrowing owl research with Jarod Raithel. Kaylee will come to EMCC this Spring to gather more information concerning the burrowing owls and how they are faring in their habitats at EMCC.
