Wyoming Public Lands Initiative
WPLI is a collaborative, county-led process intended to collaboratively develop recommendations for the Wilderness Study Areas in Wyoming. I have been facilitating the Teton County Advisory Committee since it launched in October, 2016, in partnership with the Ruckelshaus Institute at the University of Wyoming. The goal is to develop county-driven consensus recommendations for the two WSAs in Teton County, which will be integrated in to a state-wide legislative lands package that is broadly supported by public lands stakeholders in Wyoming.
Climate Adaptation Planning
In partnership with the Model Forest Policy Program, I have supported communities engaged in climate adaptation planning, implementation, and adaptive management since 2014. I have worked with NGOs, local governments, and Tribal governments across the country. My focus has been on addressing the intersections between climate, natural resources, natural hazards, public health, and community well being as communities work towards resiliency.
Haub School Strategic Planning
Over the summer, I facilitated a Board Retreat and a series of staff conversations, which contributed to the development of a new 5-year strategic plan for the Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources at the University of Wyoming.
I designed and led an interactive case-based training session on facilitation skills for professionals participating in the Collaboration Program in Natural Resources, a program of the Ruckelshaus Institute.
The Wilderness Land Trust
I facilitated a one-day staff retreat for the Wilderness Land Trust at the beautiful BBar Ranch in the Paradise Valley in Montana. The primary focus of the retreat was staff input into a one-year strategic plan, in the context of new organizational leadership.
