Leigh Greenwood is the manager of Don’t Move Firewood, an outreach campaign managed by The Nature Conservancy’s Forest Health Protection Program. Leigh’s interest in the complex relationships between invasive species and native birds stems from even before her Master’s Degree in Wildlife Biology, where she studied the interplay between invasive plants, flies used for biological control, and the overwinter foraging of Black-capped and Mountain chickadees. She has worked for the Conservancy since 2007 and her current favorite bird is the Clark’s Nutcracker.
