Guilford Conservation Committee presents another talk in the Living with Nature Series. Lindsay Suhr will discuss invasive plants – why we should care about them, and their destruction of public and personal environments.
Lindsay (Suhr) has a varied conservation background. After graduating from Connecticut College with a degree in Environmental Science, she worked for the Iowa Conservation Corps where she focused on timber stand improvements and prescribed burning. She then moved back to Connecticut and worked for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, conducting research in a threatened and endangered bird colony on Faulkner Island in Guilford. She also worked as the Land Stewardship Manager for the Greenwich Land Trust, focused on land acquisitions, meadow restorations, and invasive species removal. At the Connecticut Forest & Park Association, Lindsay is the Land Conservation Director. She works on protecting working forests and the Blue-Blazed Hiking Trails and manages the properties CFPA currently protects. She is a steering committee member of both the Connecticut Invasive Plant Working Group and the MassConn Sustainable Forest Partnership. Lindsay loves the outdoors and enjoys playing basketball, running, and spending time with her family.
