Meghan is most recently from western Montana, where she earned a master’s in natural resource conservation at the University of Montana. She has extensive experience working with small-scale agricultural producers interested in specialty product certifications, and providing technical, science-based assistance to improve land management practices. Meghan comes to Jackson County with a wide breadth of field experience across the Intermountain West, including wildfire risk mitigation, botany surveys, rangeland and pasture assessments, trail design and construction, invasive species management, and riparian restoration.

Since starting with JSWCD, Meghan has worked extensively with landowners impacted by the 2020 South Obenchain Fire and has gained a comprehensive perspective on the unique and diverse values of Southern Oregon’s woodlands. She particularly enjoys connecting with landowners over what they consider to be the most significant part of their forest resources and strives to put a landowner’s goals first when designing conservation and restoration projects.

Meghan grew up in southern Colorado, and has a strong appreciation for the natural world and the critical role that private landowners play in natural resource stewardship. She is excited to explore the incredible ecological diversity of the Rogue River Valley and to learn from landowners what they value most about their natural resources. When not learning from landowners and producers, you can most likely find Meghan exploring the Rogue watershed by river or trail.
