Leigh Greenwood, Coalitions and Networks Manager

Leigh The Nature Conservancy is only one piece of a huge puzzle in the fight against invasive species.

As the Coalitions and Networks Manager for the Global Invasive Species Team, I work with a diverse group of private industry leaders, academic organizations, non-profits and our colleagues at state chapters of The Nature Conservancy to combat existing invasions and prevent future invasions from occurring. By bringing these voices together and keeping the lines of communication open, the interests of all the different groups can be heard, respected, and our common interests can be advanced.

I started with the Global Invasive Species Team in December of 2007 and my work so far has concentrated on bringing groups together to aid in the prevention of entry and spread by invasive plant pests and diseases in North America. As the newest member of this dynamic team, I can expect that my scope of efforts will expand into many different taxa and I look forward to potentially working with aquatics and international efforts.
