History with Roots & Shoots: Seven years with Roots & Shoots; RSYC member 2017-2023

Everett is based in Dexter, Michigan, where he is making nature conservation accessible with the power of art. Everett has been with the council the longest, and so he has a lot of experience using our Roots & Shoots 4-step formula to create impactful projects. The COVID-19 pandemic posed unique challenges, but in 2022 he found exciting new ways to use his skillset, including working on a Global Roots & Shoots alumni network with Roots & Shoots youth councils in Canada and Australia. Even with these new opportunities, he has continued to work on his long-term Roots & Shoots project, Good Spokes, where he has raised over $5,500 for several different community and national non-profit organizations by selling his art! On a similar note, he is currently working on a coloring book to help people learn about the ecology around the Great Lakes. Outside of his many projects, Everett loves reading and spending time with his family, friends, and pets.
