Sarah Wilson

Sarah Wilson recently joined Rivers Edge West and NRCS as a Private Lands Biologist/Technician in 2018. She received her Bachelors of Science in Biology from Colorado Mesa University in 2010.
Sarah hails from the rural Southeastern Colorado where she worked for three summers for the Baca County Conservation District and the local Natural Resource Conservation Service office assisting local producers with conservation.
Locally, Sarah worked for a summer as the Naturalist/Interpreter at Highline Lake State Park where she led educational programs for kids, guided hikes, and provided information of all kinds to park visitors. She also worked for Mesa County Weed and Pest District for a summer tackling state-listed noxious weeds from Mesa to Loma.
Before settling down in Grand Junction, Sarah lived and worked extensively in Alaska where she received her A.A.S. in Fisheries Technology. Her fisheries work over the years has included contracts as a North Pacific Groundfish Observer. She has lived aboard small fishing vessels with fishermen taking data from their catches for use in resource management. Sarah also worked for the US Forest Service on a salmon run revitalization project in the Misty Fjords National Wilderness.
Sarah’s experience with producers and resource stakeholders will enable her to bring the resources REW and NRCS have to offer to local landowners. She looks forward to finding solutions for Western Colorado lands.
