Lindsay Peria was born and raised in Victorville, California. She graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in March 2021 with a B.S. in Biology, and she joined Sequoia Riverlands Trust in July of 2021 as an Assistant Conservation Biologist. She researched many different plants and animals while she was in school, but working with blunt-nosed leopard lizards in Carrizo Plain National Monument was where she developed a love for the Carrizo Plain. She is excited to continue protecting and managing land there with SRT. Lindsay has always loved the outdoors and explores them in her daily life hiking, running, and cycling on the central coast.
