Sean joined The Nature Conservancy in 2018 to scale up conservation and restoration of our unique sagebrush-steppe habitat of Southwest Montana. Sean represents the Southwest Montana Sagebrush Partnership, a coalition of local watershed groups, landowners, and federal and state agencies all working toward a common goal across all ownership boundaries: to enhance priority sagebrush habitats, the native species that depend on them and the small communities that have been shaped by them. Sean comes with a diverse background in restoration and land management in both the private and public sectors. He and his wife, Jennifer, live in sagebrush country with their two daughters and son.
