Yetter hired as regional specialist for Indiana Invasive Initiative

Liz Yetter has been hired by the Southern Indiana Cooperative Invasives Management (SICIM) as a Regional Specialist for the Indiana Invasives Initiative.

Yetter will be based out of the Wayne County Soil and Water Conservation Office.

She will serve South Eastern Indiana for Dearborn, Decatur, Delaware, Fayette, Franklin, Henry, Jay, Randolph, Ripley, Rush, Union, and Wayne. 

Yetter is originally from New York State and attended State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry. She graduated with her Bachelors of Science in Natural Resource Management.

Yetter is looking forward to working for the Indiana Invasives Initiative, getting to know the area and working with others to lessen the impact invasive plants have on the environment. She is also excited to show how a group of dedicated individuals can make a difference.

Ray Chattin, SICIM Chair, which sponsors the state-wide Indiana Invasives Initiative, is pleased to have Yetter as one of four Regional Specialist now on board around the state.

“We were impressed with how much experience with invasive plants Liz brought to the job,” Cattin said. “Her references were stellar, she’s outgoing, and has experience getting people to work together.”

Chattin added he was impressed with Yetter’s insights into questions on how to frame educational messages on the harm invasive species do to our natural landscapes. The group felt Yetter would be an asset in building teams locally and is pleased to have her on board.

Yetter can be reached at liz@sicim.info or call (765) 277-1415.
