Kiana Sinner joined the Thurston Conservation District as Community Outreach Assistant in September, 2019. She is looking forward to coordinating and leading volunteers in community work parties in addition to organizing the South Puget Sound Regional Envirothon competition for high school students.

Kiana earned a Bachelor of Science degree in botany from The Evergreen State College in June, 2017. Since then, she interned with the Department of Transportation, monitoring vegetation and wildlife on wetland mitigation sites, and served on a Washington Conservation Corps restoration crew where she and her crew restored wetland buffers throughout the City of Olympia. Kiana also regularly organizes and leads community volunteer restoration work parties with the Chehalis River Basin Land Trust.

Raised in the rural Pacific Northwest, Kiana has always taken a strong interest in how people connect with the land that surrounds them, and she is passionate to help her community build a strong and sustainable relationship with their environment.

In her free time, Kiana enjoys tending to her indoor plant collection, gardening, hiking, and spending time with her friends, family, and cat.
