Yvette Stewart joined Audubon Texas in 2018. As the Community Outreach Coordinator, her priority project is the Audubon Conservation Leaders Program (ACL), a two-pronged approach to creating more conservation professionals. Yvette works with high schools in Dallas, Galveston, and San Antonio to introduce students to careers and experiences in the great outdoors. The other portion of ACL is working with university students and young professionals to get firsthand experience in the non-profit sector, in partnership with other statewide organizations. Yvette comes to Audubon Texas with a degree in Wildlife and Conservation Biology from the University of Rhode Island and has recently attained her Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from University of Texas. Yvette is a former AmeriCorps service member, a passionate birder, and a lover of all creatures, from tiny spiders to soaring eagles. Yvette is most happy when she’s helping people to learn and grow in the great outdoors!
