Stowe Land Trust is excited to introduce our Summer Naturalist for the 2018 summer season. Elisabeth is a happy Vermont transplant, and holds a degree in Environmental Sciences from the University of Vermont. A longtime fan of the outdoors, she grew up hiking in the White Mountains in NH. Since moving to the state she has pursued her passion for working and recreating in Vermont’s natural places.
Elisabeth brings with her four years of experience on field staff for the Green Mountain Club. That time taught her self-reliance in the backcountry and instilled a deeper appreciation of the benefits of being surrounded by nature. As a caretaker for the GMC, she educated hikers about Leave No Trace practices and the rare alpine plant community that is found on the high summits of Vermont. In 2016 she moved to Montana to learn about and explore the west. In her free time from WWOOFing on a farm in Bozeman, she took advantage of all the public land the west has to offer by visiting National Parks and hiking the John Muir Trail. In the end though, Vermont’s green hills were impossible to resist, and Elisabeth is excited to be back in this beautiful state, and to join Stowe Land Trust as the Stewardship and Outreach Assistant this summer.
