National Geographic Young Explorer Grant

Really exciting news! Last week I found out that my proposal for National Geographic's Young Explorer Grant program was accepted! What's this mean? Well, this August I will lead an expedition over 1,000mi around Iceland to document the species diversity, ecosystems, and cultures surrounding lichens! I'm really excited to become a part of the Young Explorer community, and am really looking forward to this expedition!

I'll post more details about the project sometime in the near future, but for now here's a little more general info:
