Meet our new Director of Community Engagement, Logan Applebee!
Updated: May 17, 2022
Logan is the new Director of Community Engagement for Green Living Science. He is excited to engage with residents and businesses throughout Detroit to increase access to recycling and promote environmental actions. Logan hails from Mid-Michigan but has spent his professional career working in community engagement and environmental education in the city of Detroit. He is excited to be a part of the robust waste reduction work taking place in Detroit and to incorporate his experiences with climate and environmental justice.
Logan’s connections to the environment originate from the deeply rooted conservation values passed down throughout his family. During his first semester at the University of Michigan, he was introduced to the concepts of environmental justice and urban planning, which have shaped his personal and professional journey ever since. Logan participated in the University of Michigan’s immersive semester in Detroit, where he interned for the Regional Transit Authority of Southeast Michigan.
Through this program, his desire to become a part of the Detroit community was realized and he has been putting down roots in the city ever since.
Logan is passionate about equity and improving folks’ quality of life through programming, like Green Living Science’s, and through long term political and policy change. To accomplish these goals, Logan is working towards his Master of Urban Planning degree at Wayne State University. In addition to his work and studies, he likes to volunteer with outdoor youth programming and support social justice campaigns throughout the region.
In his free time, Logan enjoys hiking, camping, and biking throughout Detroit, finding new spots for coffee, and buying too many books. He loves to take walks throughout his neighborhood, Woodbridge, and enjoy summer evenings at DCFC matches or Tigers games.
Logan can be contacted at Logan@greenlivingscience.org or at (313) 871-4000 ext. 701. You can follow him on LinkedIn here.
