The Alliance is thrilled to introduce the newest member of our team, Kevin Krasnow, who joins us as Conservation Director. Kevin will provide significant knowledge, passion and a deeply scientific perspective to the Alliance’s conservation efforts.
Kevin is an ecologist and educator seeking to find sustainable solutions to pressing environmental problems and to educate the next generation of environmental stewards. Kevin is originally from Colorado Springs, Colorado and spent his formative years growing up in San Diego, California. He has a B.S. in Human Biology from Stanford University, a masters in Forest Geography from the University of Colorado, and a Ph.D. in Forest and Wildfire Ecology from UC Berkeley.
Kevin’s past work has focused on conducting ecological research, teaching field-based ecology, and fostering connections between people and the natural world. Kevin has instructed Outward Bound courses in the Beartooth Mountains, taught high school biology and chemistry, and directed an outdoor leadership and science program in San Francisco public schools. His past research focuses on understanding fire ecology, global change, ecosystem resilience, and effective science education. For the past decade, Kevin has been the research director at the Teton Science Schools in Jackson, Wyoming, where he taught graduate level ecology courses and directed ecological and educational research. To date, Kevin’s work has indirectly supported ecological conservation, and he is elated to join the Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance where he can work directly toward conservation and sustainability in the Teton and Greater Yellowstone Regions
