The Nature Conservancy

I am currently the Colorado State Director for the Nature Conservancy, where I lead a staff of 57 and a Board of Trustees of 25 Trustees as we work together with partner organizations, government agencies, elected officials and other key decision-makers to build alliances and shared agendas that advance conservation outcomes both in Colorado and around the world.

The Nature Conservancy is the leading conservation organization working to make a positive impact around the world in more than 35 countries and all 50 United States. Founded in 1951, the mission of The Nature Conservancy is to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. With the support of more than 1 million members we have protected over 119 million acres of land around the world. In Colorado, the Conservancy has protected nearly 1 million acres of land and restored over 1,000 river miles with the support of more than 30,000 in-state members.
