Jared Baecker named Snake River Fund program director

(Jackson, Wyo.) - Yesterday, the Snake River Fund announced that Jared Baecker has been named program director to develop the nonprofit’s education, stewardship and access work. According to release issued yesterday, Baecher is a biologist, professional naturalist and river enthusiast. He has worked for Wildlife Expeditions, Natural Habitat Adventures and as a board member and volunteer for the Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation. “The Snake River is not only a marvelous natural resource; it is also an economic engine,” Baecker said. “It is imperative to work collaboratively to achieve goals that sustain the resource but also sustain our local economy. The collaborative work of the Snake River Fund, local businesses and government agencies to promote wise use and stewardship is something to be admired.” Baecker replaces former Program Director Margaret Creel, who moved on from the organization in October after 10 years of creating and implementing the organization’s educational and outreach programs for youths and adults. *Feature Photo: h/t Snake River Fund / Pitchengine Communities* #buckrail #news
