Lisa Trapp is the Program and Outreach Manager for Capital Trees. She graduated from Virginia Tech in 2013 with a B.S. in Wildlife Science and spent four years as the Supervisor of Rockwood Nature Center with Chesterfield County Parks and Recreation.
After introducing a handful of native plants to her home garden, she witnessed how quickly the ecosystem was willing to change for the better. This piqued her interest in urban landscaping with native plants, particularly projects that incorporated sustainable practices and wildlife needs as part of the design. Lisa moved to Richmond seven years ago, and after growing up a Coast Guard brat, the city is officially the place she has lived the longest, and where she calls home.
Lisa’s responsibilities include building community engagement, education and volunteer opportunities, presentations, growing collaborative partnerships, building programming around the Low Line and other projects, supporting development, and outreach initiatives. Lisa joined the organization in December 2020.
