Stewardship Technician: Kara Rahe

Kara Rahe, Stewardship TechnicianKara chose to work for AmeriCorps after she heard that some of her friends had rewarding experiences as AmeriCorps members, and she was really excited to come across this opportunity to serve in her own community. With her service, she hopes to gain a greater understanding of the land management plans at each of Bur Oak Land Trust’s properties – while looking forward to making a significant impact with hands-on land maintenance. Kara feels that invasive species management and habitat restoration are important aspects of the work that she will be doing, while enjoying the outdoors and expanding her understanding of the ecology of Iowa. She is especially excited to learn more about prescribed fires and work with chainsaws. When asked how she thinks this service will help with her long-term goals, she says, “I believe that the training and certification opportunities will help build a knowledge base that will open doors for me. I also think that the experience will help me decide what I would like to focus on in the future.”
