Brown Bag Lecture: Tara Poloskey
Tara Poloskey is the West Texas Education and Outreach Coordinator for the Nature Conservancy in Texas based out of the Davis Mountains Project Office in Fort Davis. She began her career at The Nature Conservancy in December of 2017.
Growing up in Michigan, Tara was an avid outdoors woman as a runner and an equestrian. Tara came to Texas from Michigan in 2004 to pursue a master’s degree where she fell in love with the beauty and wildness of West Texas. She relocated to Arizona to continue her work in conservation in the private sector conducting wildlife surveys and working with endangered species for the US Fish and Wildlife Service until finding her way back to Texas in 2011. After a year working as a Bat Specialist for the state, she reunited with West Texas with a position with Texas State Parks as an educator until moving to The Nature Conservancy to broaden her goal of connecting people to nature on a global scale.
