Though LANDFIRE would like to keep her all to ourselves....
... in the spirit of One Conservancy, we celebrate the good news: Sarah Hagen, TNC GIS analyst, has received a CODA* fellowship to work on the Great Lakes to Great Lakes Initiative. Sarah splits her time between the TNC-LANDFIRE team and the Illinois Field Office, meaning that she works for both national and state/regional levels.
Working with colleagues from the North American and African Great Lakes Programs Sarah will collect, collate and synthesize data, tools, projects, and background information to create a new information management platform to be debuted at the upcoming Great Lakes of Africa Conference in May 2017 in Uganda. This effort will take advantage of the Great Lakes Inform knowledge management platform that the Great Lakes project has developed.
* The Nature Conservancy's Coda Global Fellows Program is named after Michael John Coda, former TNC vice president and director of external affairs. The program mobilizes staff capacity and expertise through short-term assignments to meet the organization's greatest global needs while providing staff with opportunities to contribute and learn beyond their home program.
