News: SLT Hires Conservation Program Coordinator
Stowe Land Trust is pleased to welcome Elisabeth in her new role as Conservation Program Coordinator. Elisabeth will be coordinating easement stewardship, volunteer work, and the summer naturalist program. She will also assist with outreach and organizing Stowe Land Trust events.
Her name might be familiar - Elisabeth spent this summer serving with Stowe Land Trust as the Stewardship and Outreach Assistant, a position through the VHCB AmeriCorps program. This gave her the opportunity to get to know the Land Trust and connect with community members through educational outdoor programming. She is excited to bring this experience, along with a background in trail maintenance, volunteer coordination and outreach, and a B.S. in Environmental Sciences from the University of Vermont, to her new position.
Elisabeth has always enjoyed being outside. She spent her childhood hiking and wandering around the woods, and it was her love of the Green Mountains that kept her in Vermont after college. She credits working for the Green Mountain Club as setting the foundation for her understanding and appreciation of the natural places in this state. Overseeing the stewardship program at Stowe Land Trust is a wonderful way to share that appreciation with Stowe locals and visitors alike.
Be sure to say “hello” if you see Elisabeth on the trail, in the office, or around town!
