Ethan works collaboratively with the Forest Service, East Cascade Recreation Partnership (ECRP), and Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust to support thriving communities, thriving nature, and thriving recreational experiences in the Upper Yakima Basin. Ethan grew up in Laramie, WY where a strong land ethic and concern for social justice was instilled him during long alpine hikes and drives through the Wyoming steppe by his father, an entomologist, and mother, a social worker. Ethan spent the past year working on the Mt. Adams Ranger District on the Gifford Pinchot National Forest supporting the Pinchot Partners and South Gifford Pinchot Collaborative before joining the Greenway Trust. When not at work, he can be found drinking black coffee and skiing, running, backpacking, and climbing as long as the caffeine lasts.
