Mariah Acton

Board Member

Mariah has a deep love for the trees, rivers, and mountains that make this region so beautiful, and she appreciates the great work of land trusts to help keep it that way. Mariah serves as a “Student Scholar” on the MRT board via the University of Oregon’s Department of Planning, Public Policy, and Management. With a degree in environmental policy from the University of Alaska Fairbanks and her current pursuit of dual Master’s degrees in conflict resolution and public administration, Mariah brings thoughtfulness and great skills to the Board. When not studying, she enjoys helping her family on their dairy goat farm and exploring the great northwest with her partner Jeremy and their terrier Jaeger.
