Amanda Lindsay is a senior biologist for the Landscape and Natural Resources Department at the University of Central Florida in Orlando. Her duties include managing the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) stormwater compliance program and assisting with the urban tree canopy on the urban parts of campus, as well as land management activities in the 800 acres of natural lands that also belong to the university. Amanda will touch on the services of Central Florida Cooperative Invasive Species Management Areas (CISMA) that encompass Orange and Seminole Counties.
Amanda earned her B.S. in 2011 from the University of Central Florida where she studied Environmental Science. She is an ISA certified Arborist and a Qualified Stormwater Inspector through FDEP. Prior to graduating, she worked for NextEra Energy Resources in Maine conducting fish passage surveys and assisting with studies on the effects of hydroelectric dams on the surrounding wildlife populations.
