Brandi Crawford Ferguson

Associate Director of Philanthropy

Brandi is a native of the McKenzie River watershed and has worked for the McKenzie River Trust since 2009. “With such deep roots here, I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to help preserve the natural lands I grew up in and connect our community to this amazing place we call home.” Brandi adopted a city park, Awbrey Park where she hosted a monthly volunteer work party for 11 years, focused on restoring the natural area. Brandi’s volunteer experience inspired her to work in local land conservation. Prior, she worked in community relations and market research for the airline industry nationally. Beyond work, Brandi enjoys anything that gets her outdoors – backpacking, kayaking, photography, cycling, gardening, yoga and fly-fishing, “For me, fly fishing offers an excuse to stand in the middle of the river and look like I belong. Catching a fish – that’s fun too!”
