Laura Carter
Forest Stewardship Intern

Laura has worked at MTRI since January of 2022, shortly after completing her Master’s degree in Resource and Environmental Management at Dalhousie University (DAL). During her time at DAL she worked with the Department of Natural Resources and Renewables on projects involving site productivity and old growth forests, combining her interest in forest ecology with her background in Geology, in which she holds a BSc. from Saint Mary’s University. Laura is currently working on developing a pilot incentives program for species at risk on private woodlots, as well as assisting with old growth forest research and outreach projects. In her spare time Laura enjoys yoga, ultimate Frisbee, tending to her extensive collection of houseplants, and hiking with her dogs.
