Sarah Newman

Sarah is a Research Associate at Colorado State University’s Natural Resource Ecology Lab where she supports the educational research project CarbonTIME as well as the international citizen science platform

Sarah’s passion for engaging people in science grew from her graduate work studying invasive plants in Florida. It is difficult to tackle a nemesis like invasive plants without the buy-in and help of the community being affected by them. She’s been involved in citizen science ever since! Her graduate work led her to a position as the Citizen Science Director at Beaver Creek Reserve in Wisconsin where she worked with dozens of citizen science programs from the local to state level. When she relocated to Colorado, she became the Citizen Science Program Manager at the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) where she focused her efforts on national citizen science with Project BudBurst and Citizen Science Academy (both programs are now run by the Chicago Botanic Garden). And today, she is happy to be a part of the team!

Sarah has a B.S. in Wildlife Management, Biology, and Spanish from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point and an M.S. in Ecology from Florida State University.
