On land conservation: “The ocean, mountains, forests, fields, rivers and all the spaces between have been essential elements in my life. I have experienced the transformative affect of outdoor pursuits and seen how it changes people and offers new perspectives. Conservation creates opportunities for these impactful experiences and I want my daughter, and all people, to have access to those opportunities.”
