Jack Creek Preserve Foundation is driven by a volunteer Board of Directors and a small staff, and supported by tremendous volunteers from the neighboring communities of Big Sky and Ennis.
"While working in Colorado and Arizona, outreach and education were a big part of my career. I am excited to have the opportunity to work in such an amazing place and get back to conservation education and outreach."
