New Conservation Fellow Joins LCC Team

Our second Conservation Fellow, Dr. Madeline (Maddie) Brown, will be coming on board in the summer of 2017 and stationed at Penn State University under the direction of Dr. Tim Murtha and jointly supported by the Appalachian LCC and National Park Service.

Her work will focus on geospatially-referenced social and cultural resource conservation and aid Appalachian LCC research already underway for our “Integrating Cultural Resource Preservation at a Landscape Scale” project.

Maddie is an Ecological Anthropologist interested in how social relationships mediate natural resource management and access. Her work combines ethnographic fieldwork with quantitative spatial and network analysis to examine individual and cooperative strategies in resource management systems. She earned her PhD in Ecological Anthropology at Stanford University in 2017.

Appalachian LCC Conservation Fellowships, a program unique within the National LCC Network, provides opportunities for post-graduate level training in applied landscape conservation and resource management. Fellows work across many facets of applied conservation to coordinate efforts (meetings, workshops, webinars) that promote resource sharing and collaboration within networks and partnerships. Although opportunities may vary, examples of the different conservation practices and perspectives the Fellowship may work with include industry, regulatory, advocacy, education and outreach, cultural stewardship and natural resource management.
