Sara coordinates the district’s communications, social media, and marketing, and also manages our education and outreach efforts. Her job is to raise awareness of our community conservation programs across Benton County, and to foster sustainable practices through high-quality, place-based education. Sara has nearly 15 years of experience in environmental education, with an academic background in environmental science and natural resource management.

She began her career as a field biologist working with sea turtles in Florida, and soon found that she loved engaging with the public, so she began to pursue training in environmental education. She has worked in Florida, Ohio, Australia, California, and Oregon developing education programs on topics including invasive species, watersheds, habitat restoration, salmon, marine systems, forests, and more.

Sara has also worked extensively with K-12 teachers and administrators to develop and evaluate field studies which get kids learning and exploring in the great outdoors. She has a passion for Pacific Northwest ecosystems and native plants, and spends as much time as she can in her home garden. Outside of work, Sara can also be found kayaking, reading, and strolling on shady trails with her husband and young son.
