Zoe Schapira is BTWC’s new Forestry Project Manager! Zoe comes from a background of disturbance ecology in the context of wildfire, conservation work with nonprofit organizations, and community engagement during disaster recovery. Originally from New York, Zoe graduated with a Master of Science degree in Forest Sciences from CSU and her thesis focused on post-disturbance forest recovery in subalpine forests of the Rocky Mountains. Prior to that Zoe also served in AmeriCorps for two years leading forest conservation work in Montana and disaster recovery efforts in Texas, and also worked with one of our close partners, The Ember Alliance. Zoe’s passions in her career are assisting communities and ecosystems in post-fire restoration and promoting forest health. Outside of work, she enjoys recreating in the Colorado outdoors climbing, hiking, camping, snowboarding, in addition to yoga and baking! She is eager to help lead Cameron Peak recovery efforts and enhance community resilience to potential wildfire risk.
