Stephanie Beilke

Conservation Science Manager

Stephanie Beilke is the Conservation Science Manager at Audubon Great Lakes. Witnessing a diverse migratory flock of warblers visit the yard of her childhood home in Green Bay inspired her to become a passionate birder and conservationist. Since joining Audubon in 2017, Stephanie has followed her passion by leading marsh bird monitoring projects to inform coastal wetland restoration across the Great Lakes states, while engaging community scientists and Audubon chapters. Stephanie also oversees the Great Lakes Black Tern Conservation Initiative, an international conservation partnership that seeks to understand and reduce threats facing Black Terns, which have declined dramatically across the region. In her free time, Stephanie can be found birding the rich natural areas of the Chicago region. Stephanie has a B.S. degree from the University of Wisconsin - Madison and an M.S. degree from the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay.
