Cori CarpenterStewardship Field Coordinator
As the Stewardship Field Coordinator, Cori is focused primarily on completing annual visits to protected properties across Tennessee. She also assists with other components of the stewardship program including: working with landowners to understand their conservation easement, land management, GIS mapping and analysis, and record keeping and data management.
Cori graduated from Michigan State University with a B.S. in forestry and minor in urban and community forestry. Previously, she has worked with a watershed council in Oregon, helping residents environmentally recover from the effects of wildfire. Cori’s love of the outdoors stems from family summer trips throughout her home state of Michigan. Her passion for conservation grew during a gap year in New Zealand where she worked on organic farms and backpacked through the country. When not at work, Cori is usually spoiling her rescue dog. She also enjoys kayaking, biking, playing rugby, and baking.
“Conservation is a vital part of ensuring a healthy future for all of us. Everyone deserves access to a clean environment and the benefits associated with it.”
