As the UNH Extension Specialist in Community Volunteers, Malin loves nature, but also enjoys the people who love nature, especially volunteers. She is passionate about stewardship (caring for the land) and getting more people involved in doing science through citizen science. Malin believes collaboration between conservation groups, public agencies, businesses, schools, and communities is key to the future of conservation. She led the creation of Nature Groupie in 2012 to improve stewardship collaboration in New England, and to involve more people (volunteers!), use better technology, and empower generations of outdoor enthusiasts to volunteer for nature.
