SELT Welcomes Two New Staff
SELT welcomes two new staff to our team!
Emily Marshall grew up climbing the mountains and swimming in the waters here on the seacoast. She later went on to earn a degree in political science and environmental studies at Lehigh University and wrote her thesis on sustainable food systems. After working on a cattle ranch and backpacking her way around Central America and Europe, she returned home to the seacoast to nurture her strong roots.
Emily is proud to carry on the family tradition of civic engagement as a member of the Madbury Conservation Commission. She’s had the opportunity to work on many farms here on the seacoast and comes to SELT after years of managing a very successful local woodworking shop.
Seasonal Conservation Easement Steward
Andrew is a Minnesota native and moved to New Hampshire with his wife to attend grad school at the University of New Hampshire where he recently completed a graduate degree in wildlife and conservation biology. He also studied at Olaf College in Minnesota and earned his undergraduate degree in environmental studies. Andrew discovered New England while working as a summer research assistant at Harvard Forest in Petersham, Massachusetts.
His interest in land conservation and the work of land trusts grew out of his love to explore and recreate on interesting landscapes with his wife Sarah and dog Newt. He has extensive volunteer experience working with several state and federal agencies such as the U.S. Forest Service. Andrew has held a variety of interesting jobs, including as a cemetery caretaker at Santa Fe National Cemetery in New Mexico and manager of a small vegetable farm in Minnesota.
Andrew’s main focus over the next few months is to assist with the annual monitoring of SELT’s conservation easements.
