Southern Driftless Grasslands Coordinator

Cindy has been working with private landowners to promote conservation practices that improve habitat for wildlife and plant communities for the last 12 years.  A B.S. in Natural Resource Management from Rutgers University and an M.S. Forest Ecology from UMO-Columbia led to 8 years of botanical research in the lower Midwest and Great Plains. Shifting to private lands conservation in 2008, she has worked as an outreach educator and restoration service provider supporting prairie and savanna habitat restoration.  With a background in field botany, she enjoys most her time working with landowners sharing her enthusiasm for native plants and the pollinators and wildlife they support.   She currently serves as the coordinator of the Southwest Wisconsin Grasslands Network, hoping to “change the world, one landowner at a time”.
