About Steffi

When did you start working for LtL and what does your job involve?

I started working for LtL in March 2021.

My role so far has been pretty varied, and I’ve enjoyed getting to try my hand at lots of different things! I work with the Wildlife Gardening Forum on the Polli:Gen project, facilitating communications between WLGF and LtL, allowing them to provide us with their expertise and guidance as the project moves forwards. I also work on creating curriculum resources, communications and admin roles in other LtL project teams, such as Summer Outdoor Schools and Natural Nations.

The 3 experiences that have best equipped you for this role?

I have lots of voluntary experience teaching children in classroom, museum and informal settings, which I’ve really enjoyed, and has (hopefully!) given me a really good idea of how to make children engaged and interested in a topic.

My experiences volunteering in green projects in my local community- from tree planting, to peregrine falcon monitoring, to campaigning about air pollution. It’s so rewarding to get to meet so many people from different walks of life and find out what environmental issues interest and affect them- and I learn something new every time!!

My university education has taught me widely about biology, ecology and the history of life.

Steffi’s LtL Experience

What has been your best day at LtL and why?

My favourite aspect I’ve worked on is creating resources for sessions teaching children about pollinators and wildflowers. It’s really rewarding to think that the things I’m working on will help children engage more with the natural world, something I am very passionate about.

Why a frog?

My favourite hobby is go out looking for animals at dusk- from frogs, to bats, to flying stag beetles, you never know what you’re going to find!
