Conservation Science Coordinator

Meg Carter has been passionate about conservation since taking an Intro to Environmental Science course in college, at the urging of her advisor. After taking this course, she changed her major from Physical Therapy to Environmental biology and has had no regrets. During college, Meg studied the habits of elk herds on Hagg Lake, the interaction between Early Blue Violets and the Oregon Silverspot Butterfly, characteristics of the Oregon coastal prairie, bat house placement, and applications of a mobile photovoltaic power source on a permaculture farm on which she led a work crew. After college, Meg moved to Vermont to work on a small-scale organic farm and then, that winter, worked at Burke Mountain as a lift attendant. In the spring of 2011, she heard of the NorthWoods Stewardship Center, and, excited to pursue her passion, applied for 2 jobs there. Since arriving at NorthWoods, Meg has been a land management intern, a Conservation Corps assistant crew leader, an Americorps Volunteer, and is now working as the Conservation Science Coordinator in the Forest Stewardship Institute. Meg loves traveling, reading, cooking, snowboarding, playing board games (especially Scrabble), upcycled arts & crafts, solving puzzles, volunteer firefighting, and exploring the Northeast Kingdom.
