NOAA Chesapeake Bay Office
B-WET Program Coordinator
Elise Trelegan is the B-WET (Bay Watershed Education and Training) Program Coordinator for the NOAA Chesapeake Bay Office. She coordinates a $2.7 million dollar grant program to support environmental literacy throughout the Chesapeake Bay region through both capacity building and direct implementation of Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences (MWEE). She also supports professional learning opportunities for formal and non-formal educators around NOAA science topics and effective approaches to environmental education. She is interested in the way that online learning and the flipped classroom can complement and enhance traditional environmental education programs. Before her work with NOAA, Elise wore a number of hats, including Interim Executive Director, at a residential environmental education center and field station where she developed a community-based intergenerational program that was a recipient of the UL Innovative Education Award in 2016. An interdisciplinary learner at heart, Elise earned her Bachelor of Arts from Hampshire College with a self-built concentration in science communication, photography, and education. She’s currently a masters student at Virginia Tech’s Center for Leadership and Global Sustainability. Elise has also been recognized as one of NAAEE's EE 30 Under 30 (2017). In her free time, Elise can be found playing volleyball on Assateague with friends or collecting and identifying insects.

Previous to her work with NOAA, Elise was the Education Director at a residential environmental education center and field station where she developed a community-based intergenerational program that was a recipient of the UL Innovative Education Award in 2016.

In 2017, she co-organized and founded MARSH Fest, a highly intentional community festival that supports outdoor field experiences for every eighth-grade student on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
