About Lee Scharf
Lee is the owner of a Fort Collins business, Mesa LLC, Mediated Environmentally Sustainable Action. Her fellowship identifed prospective tribal professionals interested in using or leading collaborative efforts to address conservation issues on tribal lands. Identification of interested tribal professionals was done by in-person visits to tribal lands and to organizations engaged in tribal work, as well as by teleconference. A select group of tribal professionals was asked to design a training to develop their practice expertise from tribal nation to tribal nation and with multiple stakeholders, through an online dialogue created by a CSU Native American student. Lee has contributed an article/report for the collaborative conservation learning network that describes the process and outcomes of her project.
