Cheryl joined Colorado Open Lands as a land steward with over 9 years’ experience with Geographic Information Systems and having worked previously as a rangeland consultant and GIS specialist. Growing up on a small farm in Wisconsin, Cheryl moved to Colorado in 1996 and fell in love with its short-grass prairies. Cheryl has a master's in rangeland ecosystem science from Colorado State University and a bachelor's in geography and environmental studies from the University of Colorado. Her graduate research at CSU focused on investigating community-based collaborative resource management processes in northwest Colorado. Her interest in rangeland ecology has also led her to the semi-arid Chaco ecosystem of Argentina where she worked with ecologists and ranchers in developing improved range management strategies for subsistence ranching.
