Trevor Burke

Dallas, Texas

Trevor Burke, 18, of Dallas, Texas, a senior at St. Mark's School of Texas, fought to preserve a critically endangered ecosystem, Blackland Prairie, by removing invasive species, planting native grasses and wildflowers, and by raising Northern Bobwhite Quail to introduce back into the prairie. Along with recruiting more than 100 volunteers to help with his preservation project, Trevor has also educated the public through interactive presentations and a TEDxTalk about his efforts.
