Welcome To The HUPC Board, Megan Barker!

Wild places have always provided a sense of balance and renewal for me. I cherish their spiritual and ecological value. My first connections to wilderness were forged in the Uintas on family backpacks.

During college, I was fortunate to spend a summer on the East Fork and Little East Fork Black's Fork, living and working as a research technician. Gangly moose, intense storms, strawberry patches, ringtail cat-- these and other memories from that summer and other wild places sustain my everyday life in not- so- wild places.

I have long admired the passion and vision of first UWA and now HUPC and am excited to join their efforts to protect and honor these dear mountains. When not playing in the mountains, I try to spark connections between students and the land in my role as School Programs Director at the Allen and Alice Stokes Nature Center in Logan.
