Nadia Harvieux

Nadia Harvieux joined FLI in 2013 and manages environmental and watershed-focused education programs for a wide range of diverse audiences. Harvieux coordinates internship opportunities for HWS students at the FLI, including summer research and intern positions during the academic year. Students gain valuable experience conducting research in the aquatic sciences and early career professional development. Harvieux also supports K-12 education across the region through programs including Science on Seneca, the Finger Lakes Regional Stream Monitoring Network, Finger Lakes Youth Climate Summit, Geneva 2030, Finger Lakes PRISM and professional development for educators. In addition to programs for students, Harvieux coordinates community education and citizen science with regional partners and lake associations.

With a BA in Geology from Hamilton College and a Master’s in science education from Seattle University, Harvieux has been designing innovative, field-based environmental education programs in the Finger Lakes region throughout her career. Harvieux worked in the Department of Environmental Conservation at Finger Lakes Community College as the K-12 Conservation Program Coordinator at Muller Field Station on Honeoye Lake and as an Environmental Science Adjunct Instructor. She also co-founded a successful K-12 watershed-based education program for the Canandaigua Lake Watershed Association, served on their board of directors from 2007-2020 and helped launch several ongoing citizen science initiatives to engage volunteers in water quality work. Harvieux credits growing up on Canandaigua Lake for sparking her interest in stewardship, education, and protection of the Finger Lakes.
