With the Greenway Trust since: 2023
Sarah (she/they) is excited to join the Greenway Trust as one of two seasonal educators for 2023! As a seasonal educator, Sarah provides an outstanding in-class and outdoor education experience to students of all ages. Sarah grew up in Idaho where she gained a love for the outdoors playing in the Boise river or hiking and camping in the Boise National Forest. Having these safe, outdoor places to learn and grow inspired Sarah to help create and share that experience for other kids! While seeking her B.A. in Environmental Studies, Sarah interned as an educator for Boise Snow School and at the World Center for Birds of Prey where she taught students winter ecology and raptor conservation. After graduating, Sarah worked for the USDA-ARS as a biological science technician where she assisted with several projects involving post-fire grassland restoration. She moved to Washington in 2017 to work for AmeriCorps, where she worked with the Slater Museum in Tacoma to provide their Nature in the Classroom lessons to students around Pierce County. Sarah is excited to bring her experience to the Greenway Trust in order to help inspire the next generation of environmental stewards! When she’s not educating others, Sarah enjoys hiking, nature walks, climbing, dancing, listening to music or going to concerts, cooking, foraging, and continuing to build her plant knowledge.
