Yetter is regional specialist for the Indiana Invasive Initiative

Liz Yetter has been hired by the Southern Indiana Cooperative Invasives Management as a regional specialist for the Indiana Invasives Initiative.  

She will serve South Eastern Indiana for the following counties: Dearborn, Decatur, Delaware, Fayette, Franklin, Henry, Jay, Randolph, Ripley, Rush, Union, and Wayne.  She will be based out of the Wayne County Soil and Water Conservation Office.

Yetter is originally from New York State and attended State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry.

She graduated with her Bachelors of Science in Natural Resource Management. Liz started her career with the Conservation Corps of Minnesota and Iowa primarily focusing on invasive species removal in Three Rivers Park District.

She then spent the past two field seasons working for the park district’s invasive species department, where she led volunteer groups, mapped invasive populations, tracked treatment areas and participated in the removal of a variety of invasive species.

Yetter is looking forward to working for the Indiana Invasives Initiative, getting to know the area and working with others to lessen the impact invasive plants have on the environment.  

Yetter is also excited to show how a group of dedicated individuals can make a difference.
