The Sandy River Basin Watershed Council is pleased to announce our newest addition to the team. Join us in wishing Sara Ennis well in her new position as the Community Stewardship Coordinator!
Sara comes to the Council with a background in watershed education and restoration in our basin. She learned her first native plants at Oxbow Park and taught 6th graders for several seasons along the Sandy River through Outdoor School. After graduating college, she managed the boat rental and concession at Roslyn Lake. With Wolftree, a non-profit in outdoor science education, she managed the Cascade Streamwatch Program, teaching thousands of students from across the region at the Wildwood Recreation Area on the Salmon River.
Her curiosity piqued, Sara pursued more in-depth studies in science, completing a master’s degree in Environmental Management with a focus on river restoration at Portland State University. Sara has worked for the US Fish and Wildlife Service and US Forest Service conducting stream surveys throughout the state, and most recently worked for the City of Portland’s Street Tree Program.
Sara is thrilled to realize her decade long wish of working with diverse stakeholders through a watershed council to enhance watershed health and couldn’t be happier to join the Sandy River Basin team.
