Meet the Team

Posted on: July 3rd, 2020 by Lisa Rachal No Comments

Hello!

We are the team behind “The Egret Corner” newsletters and the Ballona Wetlands Land Trust’s outreach and education efforts, we also led various environmental research projects: The Ballona Creek Infrastructure Survey Project, A Guide to Fish Found in the Lower Ballona Creek & the Ballona Wetlands and Ballona Creek Water Quality Monitoring Program to name a few.

A bit about us…..

My name is Sofia, and I’ve been part of the team since 2019. I work for the communities of Los Angeles county in hopes that more people can appreciate, conserve, enjoy, and learn about nature.
Fun facts about me: My favorite color is green. I enjoy reading fantasy books, watching movies/shows, and playing board games. You can also find me in green spaces enjoying nature.

My name is Lisa, I started off as a volunteer for the Ballona Wetlands Land Trust in 2017 and came back in 2018. While working here I look forward to continuing to improve public access to the Ballona Wetlands and other green spaces and improving public knowledge about Ballona.
In my free time, I enjoy yoga, cooking/finding amazing food, reading comics, movies, listening to podcasts and being outdoors.
