Stewart L. Udall Parks in Focus® Program
What is Parks in Focus® – Our Team
Mely (she/her/ella) is a local who lives on the Tohono O’odham and Yoeme lands. She has grown up thanking the Sonoran Desert for the sunrises, sunsets, starry skies, and strong succulents. Her love for the outdoors (la naturaleza) has guided her throughout her life, and she is excited to inspire youth to explore nature through photography and other creative expressions. She is really passionate about fusing her Ecuadorian-United States heritage and her understanding of our natural resources and conservation with service to the local community. She is devoted to learning and sharing her knowledge and appreciation for these beautiful spaces.
