Sophie Harrington
Sophie comes to CLC with 7 years of experience implementing conservation projects across the United States. Her journey started with the University of Georgia’s Interdisciplinary Field Program, where she explored the relationships between people and land in the American West. Beginning her career as a backcountry trail builder in 2017, Sophie worked in diverse ecosystems from the Adirondak Mountains to the Mojave Desert, honing trade skills like dry stone masonry and rustic carpentry while collaborating with stakeholders to achieve park management goals. A year-long stint surveying aquatic insects throughout Colorado’s Front Range deepened her commitment to understanding the interconnectedness of people, wildlife, plants, fungi and landscape. At CLC, Sophie collaborates with partnering landowners and agencies to improve water quality, wildlife habitat and agricultural sustainability.
