Daniel joined the trust in May of 2016. Daniel first fell in love with land trusts in New England where he served as the Stewardship Manager for the Vermont chapter of The Nature Conservancy between 2003 and 2006. Just before coming to lush western Oregon, Daniel spent 7 years working as Stewardship Director for the Texas Land Conservancy. He holds an B.A. in Geography from the University of Texas at Austin. Daniel is always looking forward to the next hike with his family, and hearing another bad pun.
