Iselin Preserve

Nicole Miliano

Nicole Miliano is a senior Environmental Sustainability/Geography major at SUNY Oneonta. She is looking forward to continuing gaining experience working outdoors in hopes to protect the environment. During a service trip in Guatemala, her passion for preventing land and water pollution was reinforced. She is interested in water quality, land conservation, travel, and being immersed in different cultures.

James Pizaro

James Pizaro is a student at Stony Brook University studying Environmental Studies. He is a Long Island native and an Eagle Scout and has dedicated hours of service time to conservation through Scouting. He can’t wait to continue helping our environment with the Land Alliance!

Peter Markotsis

A Long Island native, Peter Markotsis is a rising senior at Vassar College majoring in Earth Science and Society (a unique blend of Earth Science and Geography) and minoring in Creative Writing. When not exploring the Peconic Bay on a paddle board or attempting to hike the 46 highest mountains of the Adirondacks, Peter can often be found reading outside, or nestled in a bookstore in an effort to write a novel about dragons.
