Communications Director

Alan joined the Outdoor Council in January 2020 after spending 15 years as a journalist – including eight years as an editor for the Casper Star-Tribune – and earning a master’s degree in professional media from Southern Illinois University. He grew up bouncing around the country, and his fondest memories include peering up at giant redwoods in California, digging snow caves in New England, and hiking everywhere in between. He took up backpacking in earnest during high school and his experiences on the trail instilled in him a sense of urgency to conserve our remaining wild places. Years of wandering Wyoming’s public lands only strengthened that resolve. Now, he’s proud to support the Outdoor Council’s efforts to protect the state’s most precious resources. Alan spends as much time as possible enjoying the outdoors: whether it be camping, hunting, cross country skiing, or simply tending to his vegetable garden and backyard chickens. He and his family live in Casper.

A dream for the Red Desert

February 8, 2021

It’s the heart of winter in Wyoming and, for many of us, it’s a favorite time of year. The days are short and the nights are cold, but the snow brings a quiet, peaceful stillness and lends a special beauty to everyday life. For some, that means skiing, snowmobiling or ice fishing. For others, hunkering down with a hot drink and good book or movie is the best way to enjoy the season.
