Casey Snider, Executive Director
Casey Snider began working with us in January 2018, coming from an executive directorship at Tread Lightly!, a nonprofit working on responsible land and water use education. As an undergraduate student at Utah State University, Casey earned dual Bachelor’s degrees in Conservation and Restoration Ecology and Law and Constitutional Studies. He then earned a Master’s in Environmental Science and Policy from Johns Hopkins University and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Forestry from Utah State University.
As our new Executive Director, he hopes to work with members of all crowds, including farmers and ranchers, local businesses, sportsmen groups, and environmental organizations to strike the necessary balance needed to protect our local lands and working landscapes.
Casey has worked on land use issues for years, and knows the importance of meeting in the middle and solving issues for all stakeholders. This reasonable, multi-use approach is going to enable BRLC to be a major player in responsible land conservation in Utah.
Originally from Liberty, Utah, Casey grew up surrounded by farming, and currently owns and operates a ranch in the northern part of Cache Valley. He lives in Paradise, Utah with his wife and daughter.
