LandPaths is delighted to introduce Erin Mullen, new Stewardship Coordinator, to the LandPaths team.
Erin grew up in Sacramento and gained a deep connection to, and appreciation for wild spaces as a child, while camping with her family each summer in the Sierra Nevada and Northern Coast Ranges. Her passion and dedication to land conservation stem from these childhood trips.
Erin will draw upon this passion, as well as both her academic and direct field experience, in her new position at LandPaths. Most recently Erin was employed with the National Parks Service, where she kept busy with field work in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Her work included removing invasive species (such as Cape ivy, ice plant, and invasive grasses) and planting natives as part of habitat restoration in the Presidio. This added on-the-ground experience to her MS in Evolution, Ecology and Conservation Biology from SFSU.
Working with the National Parks Service, she also gained experience using scientific tools to learn from the land, monitoring native plants and animals at numerous locations within the GGNRA. Erin pairs her interest and experience in conservation, with an interest in people - engaging people with the land through stewardship.
We look forward to Erin meeting you! Once she gets her feet on the ground, Erin will be working with volunteers and partners to learn more about LandPaths-owned preserves, and the best ways to steward these unique and valued places. We hope you will join her on this adventure in stewarding the land in Sonoma County.
