Caitlin Welsh

Special Projects Coordinator & Juniper House Parent

Caitlin joins Eagle Rock School as Special Projects Coordinator where she works to create opportunities for students to learn horticulture, maintain the school’s mountain bike fleet for community use, and collaborate with staff to guide students’ off-campus learning experiences through the Real World Learning program. Having grown up among the deciduous forests and freshwater lakes of Michigan, she has found joy exploring the unique natural environment she has called home while also working to protect and share those places with others as an educator and environmental steward through organizations like AmeriCorps (Massachusetts), San Joaquin Outdoor School (California), Summer in the City (Detroit), AIM Academy (Pennsylvania), and Philadelphia Parks and Recreation. Most recently she spent 5 years supporting avian conservation as an assistant bird bander, educator, and curriculum consultant for Willistown Conservation Trust in Newtown Square, PA. This is also where she put her years of experience weeding and tending her mother’s extensive gardens to use as a farm worker for the community-supported agriculture program at Rushton Farm. Caitlin earned her bachelor’s from Indiana University and a Master’s in Environmental Studies from the University of Pennsylvania with a concentration in advocacy and education. When she’s not coddling seedlings and counting wrenches, Caitlin enjoys riding her bike, romping with her dog, Kelly, getting to know the local wildlife, baking banana muffins for the Juniper House family, and reading the next epic fantasy series.
