Jose Santiago

Center Coordinator at the Discovery Center

As the Fund II Apprentice for Audubon Pennsylvania, Jose Santiago hopes to increase both access and exposure to nature in urban areas. Working out of the Discovery Center in the Strawberry Mansion neighborhood of Philadelphia, Santiago will dedicate much of his time to community engagement and science, as well as exposing high school seniors to jobs in the environmental sector. Growing up, Santiago did not have many opportunities to use the green spaces in his neighborhood. He is excited to make a direct change in the Discovery Center’s surrounding community and his home of North Philadelphia.
