Meg Burgett

A.S. (Meg) Burgett came to Alaska in 1985, “just for a few years”, and 30 years later is still here. Meg went to work for the University of Alaska Fairbanks Cooperative Extension Service in 1986 as an Integrated Pest Management technician and has been with CES for most of her career in Alaska. During that time, she has worked with a variety of natural resource programs, with many different ages and audiences, embracing the philosophy of her mentor that “if you give people good information, they make good decisions”.  Meg’s background is in Forest Management and she is currently the Project Learning Tree coordinator for Alaska, delivering high quality professional development training to Alaska’s educators using the forest as a window to the world, helping develop critical thinking skills in the next generation of Alaska leaders. A retired musher, Meg now spends her off time fishing, hunting and exploring Alaska with her husband and son, and anyone else she can talk into an adventure. This is Meg’s second term as President of the BOD.
