Welcome to My Species Step Challenge Fundraising Page
I love wildlife, wild lands, and all kinds of ecosystems. From 2007-2009, I worked in the Washington Conservation Corps across the Cascade mountains and Lake Chelan on a crew. We worked with the Nature Conservancy to track the invasive species knotweed to improve salmon habitat along the Skagit River. We cut down evergreens on Waldron Island (out in the San Juan Islands) for a week to allow space for the native oak savannah to grow. Later, I worked primarily with a salmon enhancement nonprofit to track salmon populations in rivers, land restoration projects, and environmental education. If that weren't enough, I was a fish hatchery tour guide an Eagle guide.
This stuff is such hard work!! It takes complex systems of collaboration across all kinds of boundaries and borders. I'll never forget the two years I gave to these incredible projects. My love of nature, exploring, and animals has never ceased, and I continue admire the people that work in conservation and to protect wildlife species.
Celebrate their work and the future of animals by walking with me this October!
