“It brings me great joy to be part of an organization that is conserving local lands for the betterment of all living things.  I hope to use my experience as a teacher and ranger to encourage others to become involved in the land trust.”

Lorrie Lagasse has been spending time in the woods since she was a child in New York state.  After receiving a degree in forestry from Virginia Tech she moved to California to work for the forest service.  She went back to school at Cal Poly to learn how to teach which landed her jobs in the elementary school and also environmental education camps. Summers were spent working for national parks like Sequoia and Lassen as a ranger.  Here on the Mendocino Coast she docents for the state parks, particularly MacKerricher State Park.
