Katie Carr is the TerraCorps Community Engagement Coordinator for Hilltown Land Trust. She grew up in the majestic beauty of Seattle, where she gained a deep appreciation for wilderness and wildlife through exploration of the waters, islands, mountains, forest, and farmlands of the Pacific Northwest. After living in New York City and Missouri, she moved to Western Massachusetts and loves all that the area has to offer. Over the years, she has held many different jobs, ranging from knitting instructor at a local yarn shop to librarian in the rare book room of a large, public university.

Alana Carveth is the TerraCorps Land Stewardship Coordinator for Hilltown Land Trust. Hailing from Farmington, Connecticut, Alana received her B.S. in Evolutionary Biology from Central Connecticut State University. Her academic career provided her with many opportunities to travel and study the natural world. She gained a dynamic research background in topics, ranging from the foraging behavior of Eastern Gray Squirrels, to the Photochemical quenching capacity of calcareous algae. Alana moved to Maryland to complete an M.S. in Environmental Biology, which focused on land use impacts on ecosystem integrity. She couldn’t stay away from New England for long, however, and she relocated to Amherst, MA, after she graduated last year. She looks forward to utilizing her skills, experience, and knowledge to have a positive impact on the natural beauty and ecological function of lands managed by the HLT.
