Claire Cella grew up in the subtly tamer wilds of the Catskill Mountains in upstate New York, before she moved to Austin, Texas to pursue a bachelor’s degree in English and journalism, followed by a master’s in Information Science. In 2016, she decided she’d had enough of the Texas’s flat scenery and hot, humid climate and sought out Wyoming for the promise of mountains to hike, snow to ski upon and acres of public lands to explore. She joined the Wyoming Outdoor Council in 2016, working to leverage and promote the broader Keep it Public, Wyoming coalition, and now in 2017, has moved into a role where she manages the organization’s social engagement platforms as well as writes, edits and designs communications materials.

It’s crucial to the watchdogging part of our mission — staff attorneys often are responsible for reviewing pages upon stacks of important legal documents to keep federal and state agencies and lawmakers accountable to their own policies, contracts, management plans, and legislation.
