Maryland Environmental Trust Names New Volunteer Coordinator
The Maryland Environmental Trust (MET) named Jamie Salabogi as its new Volunteer Activities Coordinator. MET started its volunteer program in 2003 and it’s grown to include more than 30 trained volunteers.
“I look forward to doing more of what I am so passionate about, working towards the long term conservation of our natural resources along-side people who care about the land” said Salabogi.
Volunteers monitor MET’s easement properties and work to educate landowners about the long term stewardship of conserved lands and natural resources. Volunteers help steward over 129,000 acres throughout the State each year. Salabogi will recruit, train and manage these volunteers and the monitoring assignments
Mrs. Salabogi comes to MET from the FijiIslands where she worked with local communities to establish environmental management plans as a U.S. Peace Corps Response Volunteer. She received dual Master’s degrees from IndianaUniversity in Environmental Science and Public Affairs after serving two years with the Peace Corps in the small East African nation of Malawi.
