Alyssa Cordova - Conservation Associate

Alyssa is thrilled to be a part of the RCD team! Having lived in Chico for the past few years, Alyssa has been able to familiarize herself with Butte County and loves the area. She has spent her time learning about the county’s natural resources and is excited to put her knowledge to work while gaining experience in the field. Prior to serving with the BCRCD, Alyssa attended Chico State where she attained a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Science with an emphasis in Energy and Earth Resources and a minor in Management for Sustainability. While in college, Alyssa worked for PowerSave, a student driven energy efficiency and education program, which helped improve energy efficiency on Chico State’s campus. She was also instrumental in gathering data for the Chico Energy Pioneers Program that looked at behavior as a factor for in-home energy consumption. Her background in energy offers a unique perspective to natural resources and she has helped students and community members understand their individual impact on natural resource consumption.

While serving as a member of the Sierra Nevada AmeriCorps Partnership, Alyssa will be utilizing her talents to conduct watershed restoration projects and provide outreach and education on the importance of natural resource conservation to various county residents. She will also be recruiting volunteers to help her accomplish these efforts to support the BCRCD’s mission to protect, enhance and support Butte County’s natural resources and agriculture.
