Sarah works in the Madison WI Ecological Services Field Office for the US Fish and Wildlife service and is involved with multiple projects across the Midwest that focus on endangered species recovery, habitat management, and environmental contaminants. The primary species that Sarah works on are Kirtland’s warbler, poweshiek skipperling, monarch, rusty-patched bumble bee, and the whooping crane. For Kirtland’s conservation, Sarah leads the adult and nestling color banding activities. Previous jobs include research on species such as spotted owls in Olympic National Park, loggerhead shrikes on San Clemente Island, waterbirds in Michigan’s wetlands, and a six month search for the elusive ivory-billed woodpecker in Arkansas. When she is not working, Sarah enjoys birding, bumble beeing, botanizing, photography, and hiking and spending time in Wisconsin’s nature.
