The fourth episode of the Daugherty Water for Food Podcast features a woman who is literally in the backyard of the Daugherty Water for Food Global Institute at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln.
Meghan Sittler is Director of the Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center, located about 15 minutes from downtown Lincoln, which focuses on conservation of the tallgrass prairie ecosystem and the birds that rely on it.
Meghan joined the center two years ago with a background that included eight years as the Coordinator of the Lower Platte River Corridor Alliance, and most recently she served as the Domestic Water/Wastewater Management Educator with UNL Extension where she helped to facilitate and coordinate a statewide partnership focused on the protection of Nebraska’s water resources.
Meghan also has close family ties to Spring Creek Prairie as her parents Lyle and Alice farmed land nearby and her sister and brother-in-law currently farm there. Her father was a member of Spring Creek Prairie’s stewardship advisory board and her parents received much recognition over the years for their conservation ethic they passed on to her.
