This weeks guest Niki Woodard and Laura Childers from the Sequoia Riverlands Nikki Woodard Bio: Niki, a Visalia native, joined SRT in November 2008. She returned to the Central Valley after nearly fifteen years living and learning all over the country and even outside the country. Most recently, she worked at the Pew Research Center in Washington, DC as a Research Associate where she authored several reports on the news media. She also worked in advertising in Seattle, as a journalist in San Francisco, and as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Guatemala where she taught indigenous families how to garden organically. She earned an M.A. in Communications, Culture and Technology from Georgetown University and two B.A.’s from UC Berkeley in Economics and Rhetoric. Laura’s Childers Bio: Laura joined the land trust in 2009 after being inspired to investigate practical methods for conserving land by her studies in Environmental History at The University of Texas at Austin. After a season in Yellowstone National Park , Laura noticed that the state of privately owned land surrounding the park was hugely influential on the health of the park's natural resources, namely its wildlife. It became clear to her that she needed to help conserve private land in order to ensure that important natural resources continue to exist. Laura brings her experience as a naturalist ranger at Yellowstone National Park and Sequoia National Forest to SRT's education program. She also offers her enthusiasm for insects, reptiles, and amphibians that she cultivated during a season of trapping insects and exploring caves in the backcountry of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park . Laura lives in Three Rivers. Sequoia Riverlands Trust (SRT) is a regional, Central California, non-profit land trust dedicated to conserving the natural and agricultural legacy of the southern Sierra Nevada
