Elizabeth Valdovinos joined the Rangeland Trust in 2006 as a Conservation Associate. She has supported the organization in all facets of its conservation and stewardship efforts to include coordinating conservation easement monitoring, attending site visits, reviewing easements for document compliance, compiling monitoring reports for funding agencies, and maintaining monitoring records, databases and archives.
In 2008, Elizabeth took a five-year break to have a baby and raise her son. She returned to the Rangeland Trust in 2013 where she continues to support the Conservation Unit’s easement transaction and stewardship work by managing the Rangeland Trust’s project database as well as its closed-project records.
She obtained both her B.A. and M.A. in Anthropology from California State University, Sacramento. Throughout her time with the Rangeland Trust, Elizabeth’s appreciation for California’s agriculture, open spaces, wildlife and conservation continues to grow.
