Mark came to The Nature Conservancy after serving 14 years as the Executive Director for the Idaho-based Winter Wildlands Alliance. His recent accomplishments also include co-founding the Outdoor Alliance and the Idaho Outdoor Business Council. Prior to that, Mark served as President of the Utah Ski Association/Ski Utah and in communications positions with the U.S. Ski Team, 2002 Winter Olympic Games and Park City Ski Area.

Through these efforts, Mark has been a leading voice and advocate for federal and state conservation funding, public lands policy, climate science and engaging the outdoor recreation community in conservation. Mark feeds his passion for and commitment to Idaho’s wild places through fly fishing, whitewater rafting, backcountry skiing, camping and hiking, most often with his wife, Dana, and teenaged children Asa and Eliza.

Mark understands that as the nation’s fastest growing state, Idaho faces unprecedented challenges to the health of its lands, waters and wildlife. And he believes that The Nature Conservancy is uniquely positioned to meet these challenges. Mark earned a BA in Journalism from the University of Utah and a MFA in Nonfiction Writing from the University of Arizona.

December 19, 2020

With 2021 on the horizon, I’ve been taking time to reflect on the extraordinary year that is drawing to a close. The global events of 2020 have certainly tested our resilience. The pandemic has impacted our work and our home lives. We’ve faced sickness, isolation, and some have lost loved ones.   

Yet, the words that come to mind as I reflect on this year are gratitude and hope. Gratitude to our incredibly dedicated staff and volunteers who found innovative ways to accomplish our mission-critical conservation work throughout Idaho despite the adversity we’ve faced. Gratitude to our generous supporters who, despite financial challenges, have stepped up in ways that are inspiring and humbling.

Hope in the progress I see every day toward achieving The Nature Conservancy’s mission to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends and in the promise of the coming year and our vision of a world where people and nature thrive.

I want to share two accomplishments of just the past month. With funding in place due to the generosity of our donors and with exceptional community support for the project, we secured approval from Blaine County to move forward with our long-awaited enhancement and renovation to the Silver Creek Preserve Visitor Center. The renovation includes addition of a new classroom facility with capacity to serve 25 students and other community meetings, and essential upgrades that will increase visitor accessibility, support recreation, and provide new opportunities for education and community engagement. All part of our long-term vision to enhance the Preserve for the benefit of people and nature, we’ll break ground in spring of 2021.

Additionally, we joined as a lead partner in the City of Trees Challenge, securing funding to plant 37,000 seedlings in the Boise National Forest in 2021. To read about our many accomplishments this year, please read our 2020 Impact Report.

I also want to welcome new staff members Jillian Hanson, climate program manager (a new position for Idaho), and Claire Cornell, communications manager. In the coming month I look forward to announcing a new conservation director and, another new position, agricultural program manager.

As the threats to our natural world escalate, we must scale up our work to address the challenges. With these new additions to our passionate staff and partnering with our dedicated board and supporters, I welcome 2021 and the hope that the new year brings.

May you find peace in nature and enjoy time outside wherever you are this season. Please remember those who may be more vulnerable and take care of one another.

Yours in conservation,

Mark Menlove
State Director
