Jenna Biggs is the new nature interpreter for the Conservation Foundation of the Gulf, the nonprofit has announced.

Biggs joined the Foundation staff in May, a news release notes.

In her new role, “she will create outdoor experiences for adults and families that connect them to nature on land protected by Conservation Foundation, as well as their own backyards, underscoring the importance of nature,” the release explains.

“Biggs is a Certified Interpretive Guide Trainer and a Project Wild Facilitator” with 15 years of experience as an environmental educator working for zoos, aquariums, and the resort industry, the release continues. Her past work history includes “training groups on how to communicate their missions, changing behaviors to be sustainable and environmentally minded, and educating teachers on how to get their students outside,” the release adds.

The new nature interpreter position was made possible by the Gulf Coast Community Foundation, the release notes.

The Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast “protects land and water in Southwest Florida for the benefit of people and nature,” its website explains.

“Working with landowners, businesses, and government, Conservation Foundation saves land forever, protecting those special places that make this region extraordinary. A nationally accredited land trust, Conservation Foundation purchases natural areas, holds voluntary land protection agreements, and educates for responsible land and water stewardship in Manatee, Sarasota, Charlotte, Lee, and Collier Counties,” the release says.
