Hi, everyone! My name is Abby Brayton and I am the Watershed Assistant for the Watersheds & Waterways Program at Prairie Rivers of Iowa. I am currently in my final year at Iowa State University studying Landscape Architecture with a minor in Urban Studies. I am originally from Iowa City and grew up playing lots of sports, especially outside.

Recently, I studied at the University of Hawaii at Hilo and had a chance to experience a culture that values their land more than anything and makes sure to take care of it.

In my free time I love to travel with my friends whether it’s a short road trip or flying across the country!

I am most looking forward to learning about all of the great volunteering opportunities that are available to everyone, even college students like me!

If you have any questions about what I am doing this summer or about watershed videos or social media, please feel free to email me at abrayton@prrcd.org!
