Austin Youth River Watch
Executive Director
Austin
Melinda has been E.D. of Austin Youth River Watch since February 2016. She was drawn to the role because of her “love for science and passion for empowering young people.” Previously, she served as outreach coordinator and manager of Hot Science Cool Talks at UT-Austin's Environmental Science Institute. Her nonprofit experience spans nearly 20 years. She has a BS in biology, BA in anthropology, and an MA in applied anthropology.

Austin Youth River Watch (AYRW) transforms and inspires youth through environmental education, community engagement, and adventure. As a result of our work, youth are better prepared to create positive outcomes for themselves and the environment, ensuring a better future for all. We provide an out-of-school time environmental STEM program primarily to at-risk high school students. They test water-quality, perform restoration projects, and experience the outdoors through activities like camping and canoeing.
