Sarah Merner


With roots going back several generations in the Pacific Northwest, Sarah has been a Seattle resident for 40 years. She holds two master’s degrees from the University of Washington, in English literature and in library and information science. She has worked as a community college teacher, a manager in the travel industry, an ESL educator, and a librarian. Over the last 20 years, Sarah has been a passionate advocate for the environment, including youth outdoor education, climate change, and conservation of wild lands. She loves to read, cook, knit, and garden, and to be outdoors — hiking, skiing, botanizing, and birding.

I love BirdNote for the bright spot it brings to my day, and to the lives of many others.
