Conservation Dogs Program Coordinator

Arden Blumenthal joined the Trail Conference as a volunteer for the Conservation Dogs Program in Spring 2019.  She graduated with a BS in Biochemistry from Virginia Tech where she worked with various species of wildlife, including the elusive eastern hellbender.  She went on to pursue an MS degree from Purdue University in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.  Arden is passionate about human-wildlife conflict mitigation, animal behavior, and conservation biology, which has led her to start a career as a conservation dog handler.  In her free time, she enjoys all outdoor activities, trying new breweries, playing board games, and baking.
