Northeast coordinator: Linda Gilbert (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Background: Linda Gilbert serves on the staff of Geauga Park District as a naturalist and field technician. Her background in natural history comes from being raised on a wonderful piece of rural property and also from an avid curiosity to know what kinds of wild things share the environment. Undergraduate biology courses and extra-curricular nature studies have also helped to expand and deepen her interest in nature. Linda conducts dragonfly/damselfly surveys on several park properties as well as her own. She is a co-author with Larry Rosche and Judy Semroc of Dragonflies and Damselflies of Northeast Ohio 2nd. ed. In the past, she has volunteered for citizen science projects, including vernal pool monitoring, Monarch butterfly tagging, the Ohio Breeding Bird Survey, and Project Feeder Watch. Linda is also a professional musician and holds degrees in music from Baldwin-Wallace College Conservatory and Cleveland State University. Hobbies include nature photography and water-gardening.
Feel free to also reach out to MaLisa Spring (email@example.com) with questions and concerns about the project.
