About Will

Will Booth

As an aspiring environmentalist, Will Booth sought out the Climate Corps Fellowship with Ten Strands with the purpose of launching his career in environmental sustainability. Prior to joining Ten Strands, Will found work amid the global pandemic as a contractor’s apprentice for David Grubb Construction, Inc., where he assisted in facilitating LEED-certified residential remodels while following Green Halo Systems waste diversion guidelines. Before that, he worked at Bartlett Tree Experts where he provided scientific residential and commercial tree care by properly pruning and cabling branches, as well as performing pest and disease management on the local flora. Besides being a part of the education system himself, Will did not hold specific work experience related to education or environmental literacy. He is especially grateful to Ten Strands for providing a pivot point and the opportunity to contribute in whatever way he can to create a more equitable and sustainable future. Will holds a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies and Geology from Whitman College.
