abigailAbigail Lambert, River Stewardship Manager

Abigail has worked for Ozark Land Trust since 2001.  Her primary assignment is to develop and administer land and river protection in the upper Meramec River watershed.  Abigail assists private landowners to find and tailor conservation tools that meet their needs and at the same time protect the natural resources of the property. Abigail was born and raised in St. Louis.

She has a bachelor's degree in Political Science from University of Arizona and a master's degree in Environmental Management from Duke University.  Before returning to St. Louis and joining OLT in 2001, she served as the sole staff person with Lower Shore Land Trust in Maryland for four years. Abigail’s love of birds started in Maryland and is one of the reasons she loves working at OLT and protecting bird (and other wildlife) habitat in the Ozarks.

Donna Kridelbaugh, Stewardship Specialist

Donna joined the Ozark Land Trust in June 2020. She holds a master’s degree in the biological sciences with professional experiences as a research scientist, science educator and communications consultant. As an outdoors and hiking enthusiast, she is truly only happy when she’s hitting the trails and exploring new places. Since 2014, Donna has been an active volunteer in boots-on-the-ground conservation and trail projects, from maintenance of long-distance backcountry trails to stewardship of federally designated Wilderness areas. Even though she’s a Missouri native, it’s been her volunteer work with the Ozark Trail Association that has exposed her to the remarkable ecological diversity of the Ozark region, from glade tops to bottomland fens. This experience has deepened her appreciation for the natural beauty of the region, and she looks forward to collaborating with landowners and the OLT to protect these special places.
