Lisa Kiziuk – “Conservation Gone Wild! Boost Biodiversity While Building Healthier Communities”

Speaker: Lisa Kiziuk

Land preservation has often been thought of as protecting land from people, but now the conservation movement is embracing a different view-protecting land with and forpeople. As a result, innovative programs, such as WCT’s Bird Conservation Program and the Community Agriculture Program have been developed to bridge the gap between the wild things and the needs of people, thereby facilitating land conservation. Land Trusts are in a unique position to build meaningful connections between people and land. You will learn how Willistown Conservation Trust (WCT) has successfully developed gateways to conservation that are consistently reaching and inspiring new audiences in a more effective manner.

Lisa Kiziuk is Director of Bird Conservation at the Willistown Conservation Trust (WCT). As a federally licensed bird bander, she operates the Rushton Woods Bird Banding Station, which includes a migratory passerine program, a MAPS program, and a Northern Saw-whet Owl program. In addition to her education initiatives at WCT, Lisa is currently an adjunct professor at the University of Pennsylvania in their graduate program of Environmental Science and frequently serves as a guest lecturer for local universities, garden clubs, and non-profit organizations. Lisa has a Masters in Environmental Studies from UPenn and was presented with the Rosalie Edge Conservation Award by the Delaware Valley Ornithological Club in 2011 for her work in bird conservation.
