Coastal Conservation Associate
Sam received a B.A in Environmental Studies from Ithaca College in 2020 and shortly after fulfilled his dream of moving to the Pacific NorthWest. After a summer as a wilderness ranger with the Forest Service in western Washington he moved to Oregon and began his year as a RARE service member, an Americorp position run in conjunction with the University of Oregon school of Public Policy. For the next year he will be working jointly with Mckenzie River Trust and the City of Yachats to conserve land and improve water security on the Central Coast. Sam loves hiking, backpacking, and all other outdoor recreation and hopes to attend University of Oregon next year for Graduate School.
