Cait Bell, Restoration Technician

Cait joined the BCRCD in fall 2021 as an AmeriCorps volunteer, after finishing her B.S. in Geography from the University of Minnesota and then celebrating by through-hiking the entire Pacific Crest Trail!  In college, she minored in Environmental Science, Policy, and Management as well as GIS.  She worked in a lab that focused on identifying pre-settlement fire patterns in northern forests, including Indigenous burning practices, Her love of fire ecology and forest science led her to Butte County where she has devoted her service term to implementing the Concow Resilience Project, performing surveys for the Upper Butte Forest Health Initiative, developing numerous story maps and ArcGIS projects for the RCD, and helping many local private landowners apply for federal forestry assistance.
