Sam KhomtchenkoStewardship Field Coordinator

As part of the Stewardship team, Sam visits properties annually and works directly with landowners to ensure that conservation easements are upheld.

Growing up in Brentwood, TN allowed Sam to develop a love and appreciation for Tennessee’s natural beauty. He spent his younger years exploring different hiking trails and swimming holes. His passion for wildlife and conservation led him to Rhodes College, where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in environmental science. He also was a member of the men’s soccer team for 4 years. Sam worked as a Land Steward with the Wolf River Conservancy in Memphis, TN, where he began his career in land conservation. He served as an Americorps member in New Jersey, where he educated beachgoers about endangered shorebirds and helped monitor their populations.

Sam enjoys outdoor activities, spending time with friends, playing with his pup, and watching sports.

“I love working for the Land Trust for TN because I know my efforts directly help protect hundreds of thousands of acres of scenic, natural, and historically significant land.”
