Land Stewardship Fellow
Annie grew up in California where her favorite activity was going on hikes with friends. After walking a countless number of miles past oak trees and through golden grasses, Annie decided that she wanted to dedicate her future career to protecting our environment. This motivation pushed her to hop across the country and pursue a degree in Soil Science and Environmental Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. For the past two summers, she has worked in an Organic and Sustainable Agricultural Research Lab. There, she has been running around corn and soybean fields as she collects data to fuel her understanding sustainable agriculture. Her focus has been reducing erosion and promoting the life of the entire ecosystem. Annie is ecstatic to be a Land Steward Fellow and hopes to engage in Leopold’s idea of the land ethic. Her personal goal is to learn how to incorporate agricultural demands with symbiotic environmental reform.
