Welcoming our new Program Coordinator!

WALT is thrilled to welcome Megan Nann to the team as our Program Coordinator!

Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, Megan went to Indiana to study Political Science and Spanish at Purdue University, where she got her first taste of what “winter” actually means. During her time there, she served as a research assistance examining the connections between ideology and conservation practices among agricultural producers.

After finishing her undergraduate program, Megan moved to the Pacific Northwest to get a degree in Policy Studies at the University of Washington at Bothell, amidst the massive murder of crows that call the campus home. Smitten by the Pacific Northwest, Megan remained after graduation and has worked with several regional non-profits, including Cascade Bicycle Club and Carbon Washington. As a result of these experiences, Megan has developed a passion for elevating local voices to drive meaningful policy change. Megan lives with her husband and their beloved dog in Sammamish, WA where they continue to home their skills as amateur wildlife spotters.

“Washington state is a wonderful place to live and work, because there are so many non-profits working collaboratively to  address important issues, such as climate change, ” states Megan.  “Land trusts are a critical piece of this network, with their strong connections to local communities and a lasting legacy of voluntary land conservation. I look forward to helping grow this dynamic, grassroots movement across the state.”

Megan has already rolled up her sleeves and will be working to support every aspect of WALT’s programs, including leading our communications and social media platforms, pulling together our annual Advocacy Day, and coordinating our major educational events such as Northwest Land Camp. If you would like to connect and learn more, don’t hesitate to get in touch with her at megan@walandtrusts.org or call (206) 274 2910 ext. 2.
