Stewardship Technician: Sarah Lawinger

Sarah was inspired to join Bur Oak Land Trust’s AmeriCorps team to serve her community while developing her stewardship skills, especially pertaining to removing invasive species and restoring native habitat – a concern Sarah feels is one of the most pressing for land conservation.

While developing her stewardship skills, Sarah is looking forward to expanding her species identification knowledge as well as gaining experience in chainsaw work – developing better practices and techniques for habitat restoration and timber stand improvement. During her time as an AmeriCorps member, Sarah is hoping to meet local professionals while learning more about the conservation field, and also gaining some valuable, hands-on experience to help her achieve her long-term career goals in the environmental field.
