Grant Gallaher

Civic Engagement Coordinator

Grant grew up in Spokane, Washington, but has been lucky to call many places home over the years. He received a B.A. in Biology and Environmental Studies from Whitman College, where he explored interests in environmental justice, conservation ecology, and biochemistry. He has investigated climate change in the tide pools of Sitka, Alaska, surveyed tropical plants in the cloud forests of Ecuador, taught English as a foreign language on the small Spanish island of Menorca, and researched native redband trout populations in his hometown Spokane River. 

As of 2021, Grant calls Jackson and the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem home. His projects with the Alliance focus on civic engagement and human-wildlife coexistence, including teaching the Conservation Leadership Institute and creating a Teton County Wildlife Coexistence Community Monitoring Report. Grant believes in collective action that simultaneously promotes ecological health and community wellbeing. He strives to build relationships with diverse Jackson Hole community members – including Indigenous, Latino, and working-class populations – to increase equity and justice in conservation programming and policy. 

Frequently juggling two to three jobs, Grant has also worked as a kayak, raft, and hiking guide, rock climbing instructor, ski resort employee, and Food Access Specialist for the One22 Resource Center. He speaks Spanish and English, enjoys meeting new people, and is a member of the Jackson Hole LGBTQ+ community.
