Logan Simmons

Team Leader, Teen Urban Tree Corps

In May Logan graduated from Simmons University (yes, same name!) with a Bachelor's degree in Environmental Science and Sustainability and wrote his senior thesis about the importance of urban trees for mitigating climate change. Last semester he interned at Speak for the Trees where he created an inventory of tree hearings in Boston and organized a tree walk in Roslindale. This summer he looks forward to helping Speak for the Trees improve Bostons urban forest and learn to identify some trees along the way. His passions include environmental and social justice, urban ecology, and habitat conservation. Logan was born and raised in a small town in central Massachusetts and hopes to start his career working to protect green habitats and wildlife around the state.
