The Tallgrass Prairie Center is pleased to welcome Ms. Ashley Kittle to our team as the Working Group Coordinator for the  Prairie on Farms Project.

Ashley received her BA in Political Science with minors in Environmental Science and Community Sociology from Wartburg College.  She completed a Professional Science Masters in Ecosystem Management at the University of Northern Iowa.  Since 2011 she has led and managed the Dry Run Creek Watershed Improvement Project for the Black Hawk County Soil and Water Conservation District.  

Ashley’s brings critical experience working with urban and rural landowners on a wide variety of complex water quality projects, as well as public education and outreach.  Her skills will make a superb addition to the Tallgrass Prairie Center. Ashley notes,

“I am motivated by the opportunity to implement conservation practices that will improve soil health, water quality and increase pollinator habitat.  I am looking forward to a new challenge, working with the TPC team, agricultural service providers and rural landowners on the installation of on-farm prairie restoration.”
