Tom Koehler - Director of Climate Action
Tom's appreciation for our region's natural resources was enhanced over the years by his dedicated volunteer work with Summit Huts and Friends of the Dillon Ranger District. The time spent with High Country Conservation Center also instilled a growing environmental ethos along with an appreciation for our land and water health through waste diversion, lowering pollution and GHG emissions. A healthy forest is difficult to attain. That's why he provides monthly legislative updates to the Forest Health Task Force.
Tom is founder of Sustainable Hiker, born out his passion to bring awareness of the forested watershed to our community and guests. From stewardship and conservation, legislative action and Green House Gas reduction strategies, Tom seeks to provide the paths for individuals and organizations. With significant background as a financial analyst, he sees a new era of nature investment emerging and would like to be part of that wave.
Tom enjoys alpine skiing, touring to huts, backpacking and camping. He also can't go a week without cooking a good meal.
