Alyson Scheibe

Agriculture and Outreach Coordinator

Alyson’s love for the natural world began at a young age camping and exploring the forests of Ohio with her family. This early exposure and later developed fascination with the intricacies of ecosystems led her to attend West Virginia University (WVU) where she earned a B.S. in Wildlife and Fisheries Resources with a minor in Conservation Ecology. During her time at WVU she was involved in multiple different research projects studying avian and mammalian wildlife across urban-rural and elevation gradients. Alyson went on to work as a Naturalist at a local park system, participating in native plantings and engaging the community with the local natural resources. Later, she held a position with a Soil and Water Conservation District reviewing Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans and ensuring projects compliance with Ohio EPA’s General Construction Permit. Her love for conservation and passion for healthy ecosystems brings her to Pollinator Partnership. In this position she will support education initiatives to equip landowners with the knowledge to implement pollinator-supporting practices, create demonstration habitat, and build a comprehensive network of urban farmers and producers in Ohio and Michigan. In her spare time Alyson enjoys gardening, hiking and camping with friends, and guiding Forest Therapy walks to further connect her community with the natural world.
