Liz McDonald

Position: GrizzlyCorps Fellow

Liz is completing a service year with GrizzlyCorps, a program which promotes regenerative agri-food systems in farming communities. She is excited about opportunities that serving with US-LT RCD bring, such as developing a professional skill set while applying her technical background in meaningful ways. Raised in California’s Central Valley, Liz received her degree in Earth Systems Science from 

the University of California, Merced. While in undergrad, she completed field semesters focused on environmental management in New Zealand, and conservation biology in Costa Rica. Most recently, Liz worked as UC Merced’s assistant biologist on the Merced Vernal Pool and Grassland Reserve monitoring and managing special-status species. She is dedicated to conservation and recognizes the role land management plays in climate resiliency, especially in California. Aside from restoration work, Liz is also an avid climber, painter, and herpetologist.
