Welcome Lindsay Smith, our new Stewardship Coordinator!
Lindsay Smith joined the Scenic Rivers team this month as our Stewardship Coordinator. Working with landowners and a team of volunteer stewards, Lindsay will oversee Scenic Rivers’ conservation easement monitoring and stewardship program on over 65 easements covering 3,000+ acres throughout Anne Arundel County.
Prior to joining Scenic Rivers, Lindsay was a Health and Safety Supervisor and Air Ramp Supervisor for United Parcel Service ground and air operations in San Antonio, Texas, where she was responsible for implementing a corporate health and safety compliance program to 130 employees, maintained extensive auditable health and safety records, and oversaw a unique air shipping collaboration between UPS and Amazon. Prior to that she was a National Park Service Interpretive Ranger at Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve, Arco, Idaho, amongst rift volcanoes and sagebrush. With the Lower Merion Conservancy in Gladwyne, PA, outside Philadelphia, she designed and lead experiential outdoor programs, history hikes, and bird and stream monitoring opportunities for area students, families, and volunteers. Before moving to Philadelphia, Lindsay coordinated shipboard and shoreside education programs for the Bayshore Center at Bivalve, a nonprofit focusing on the rich maritime history of the Delaware Bay, and was a tall ship sailor onboard the historically restored schooner A.J. Meerwald.
Lindsay holds a BS in Park Management and Conservation with a Natural Resources/Environmental Science secondary major from Kansas State University, Manhattan, Kansas. An Annapolis H.S. graduate, Lindsay is happy to be back in Maryland and can be spotted on her blue steel touring bicycle.
