Trinity Pierce began her conservation journey during barefoot summers exploring woodland, bogs, and roadside wildflowers of northern Wisconsin. Trinity thrives on leading and learning alongside volunteers of all ages. She has designed and implemented restoration projects from the mountain west to the midwest; from rural to urban ecosystems. Trinity has a background in history, ecological restoration, and urban green space reconciliation. In her role as the Chicago Region Trees Initiative Stewardship Coordinator, Trinity collaborates with communities to foster awareness of the importance and benefits of trees through hands-on outreach. This outreach in turn fosters action through tree plantings and ongoing tree maintenance in order to build a healthier, more diverse urban forest.
