Caroline Jezierski

Science Project Manager

(402) 471-5569

Caroline Jezierski is a Science Project Manager for NatureServe. For the past 25 years, Caroline has worked in conservation with state and federal agencies, universities, and non-profit organizations. Throughout the years, her focus shifted from field data collection to project/program management. As a young biologist, she worked across the western U.S. collecting data on at-risk species distribution and habitat assessments. During her master’s research, she transitioned to working to reduce human impacts on wildlife species. Whether observing harbor seals, bears, or human behaviors, assessing sediment input into streams from U.S. Forest Service roads, or the potential impact of a highway expansion, she worked to identify scientifically sound ways to enable recreation, development, and land management while minimizing impacts to wildlife and habitats. Most recently, Caroline was the Nebraska Natural Heritage Program Manager/Coordinator and a Midwest Representative on the U.S. Section Council for NatureServe. Caroline has a B.A. in Biology from Gustavus Adolphus College and an M.S. in Marine Biology from the University of Alaska, Fairbanks.
