Meet Our Staff

Protecting and restoring western watersheds and wildlife through education, public policy initiatives, and legal advocacy.

Jocelyn Leroux

Washington and Montana Director

Jocelyn grew up exploring the mountains and high desert of Southwest Colorado where her love and appreciation for open spaces and public lands began to develop at a young age. Jocelyn earned a degree in Environmental Biology and Ecology with an emphasis on watershed science at Western State University in Gunnison, CO and then went on to earn her master’s degree in Environmental Policy from Western Washington University in Bellingham, WA. Prior to earning her bachelor’s degree Jocelyn spent a season doing trail work in central Colorado and a summer tour guiding in Alaska. She then spent four seasons introducing teens and young adults to the mountains of Colorado while working for the Colorado Outward Bound School. Jocelyn got involved with public lands advocacy issues through her work for The Mountain Pact where she worked with local elected officials throughout the western U.S. to fight for public lands protection, wildlife conservation, and recreation access.
