South Alabama Land Trust is pleased to welcome Katherine Kuhn as the Outreach and Volunteer Coordinator. In this new position, Kuhn will actively recruit volunteers for land restoration work, floating cleanups, events, office help, and general maintenance. She will also plan and implement activities such as nature walks, guided paddles, lunch and learns, and other environmental education programs. In addition, Kuhn will seek out opportunities and represent SALT at community events.
Kuhn lived in multiple states growing up and later found herself wanting to retreat somewhere close to the coast. She attended Spring Hill College in Mobile, Alabama where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Marine Organismal Biology. Shortly after graduating, she began a fellowship program with the Alabama Coastal Foundation and was subsequently hired as the Coastal Relations Coordinator, a position she held for two years.
Kuhn was a graduate of Mobile United’s Connect Mobile Young Professionals class of 2019. In 2020 she completed training in Seattle to become a NOAA Fisheries certified North Pacific Fisheries Observer in Alaska for two terms. She now lives in Orange Beach where she enjoys being outdoors, drawing, and learning about local flora and fauna.
