Elizabeth Bear has always had a curiosity for the natural world and life sciences, leading her to graduate with a B.S. in Environmental and Natural Resources from Clemson University. After working as a backcountry trails crew member at Glacier National Park, Elizabeth hoped to pursue more work on public lands. She joined the Woodward Fire Burned Area Response team during the 2022 season, where she mapped and treated invasive plants within the burn footprint. Hoping to gain experience with fish and wildlife, she then joined the Coho and Steelhead Monitoring Program as an Americorps member through a program called Watershed Stewards. In this dynamic role, Elizabeth performed fisheries field work, taught STEM in local classrooms, and planned watershed restoration volunteer events. Elizabeth is eager to grow more in the field of conservation biology and natural resource management, and is excited to join PRNSA to help the monitoring program finish out their summer season!
