Sara (she/her) is the Environmental Programs Coordinator at ReForest London. She works under the Signal Boost Initiative and with the new Seed Collection Program: a volunteer-based effort to enhance restoration projects undertaken by ReForest London.

Sara holds a Bachelors of Natural Resource Management specializing in Fish and Wildlife Conservation, and a Master’s of Science in Forestry from Lakehead University. Sara joined the ReForest London team in 2021 with great excitement to work with a close-knit and passionate group of environmental stewards. In her role, she aims to bring fresh education opportunities to Londoners alongside fan favourite events. Moreover, she is looking forward to motivating the community in new and inspiring ways to create a more conscious and sustainable Forest City.

She believes London has the power to set the example for environmentally conscious living that actively addresses issues in the environment. Tackling such issues including invasive species, pollinator species declines, and waste water management can be improved on, given the right tools and education.

In her spare time, Sara enjoys hiking with her dog along her favourite trails, kayaking, cozying up with a tea and a good book, as well as participating with other regional environmental organizations. Her favourite quote is “Diversity is the spice of life.”

Sara’s favourite tree is a silver poplar.
