Simon Laird

Program Intern


I am a senior at Lawrence University studying economics and philosophy. I’m excited to be working with the WLCV because I’m eager to learn about how to advance data-driven public policy to effect positive change. As a kid I spent a lot of time hiking in the Southwest which gave me a deep appreciation for the need to protect our public land and natural places.

I’m a conservation voter because I believe we have a duty to preserve the beauty of nature for future generations.

Favorite place in Wisconsin: The woods in the northern part of the state near Minocqua
