Sarah Carter BS ’92


Sarah Carter BS ’92 is an ecologist for the U.S. Geological Survey in Fort Collins, Colorado. She works closely with the Bureau of Land Management to understand how scientists can do a better job of producing the science that resource managers need to manage public lands. She also researches strategies to manage and monitor multiple-use western lands at landscape levels and is excited to think about the role that these lands can play in the administration’s new America the Beautiful initiative. Carter’s oldest child headed off to college this fall at a liberal arts school close to home, but she still has hopes that one of her kids will end up at Lewis & Clark.


Sarah Carter BS ’92 moved to Fort Collins, Colorado, in 2014 to pursue a postdoc in landscape ecology. Now an ecologist with the U.S. Geological Survey’s Fort Collins Science Center, she works closely with the Bureau of Land Management to balance conservation and energy development across multiple-use lands in the western United States. She loves waking up next to the foothills and is super happy to be close to her L&C roommate, Michelle McGuire BA ’92.
