Erin Pierce

Manager, Golden-wing Society

I collaborate with supporters in the Golden-wing Society, a close group of Cornell Lab members dedicated to positive outcomes for birds and nature. I have pursued a passion for environmental outreach and conservation through previous work with land trusts and river conservation organizations. I’m thrilled to have landed at the Lab where innovative conservation science is around every corner and everyone has a good bird story to share.


Degrees in geography and GIS from Penn State University and Ohio University

Spark Moment

The first bird to catch my ear was a jovial Wood Thrush singing in the deep woods of Pennsylvania.

Beyond the Lab

I stay busy exploring the Adirondacks, sculling on lakes and rivers, raising Monarch butterflies, and gardening for wildlife.
