Wyoming Resources Coordinator
Shaleas Harrison’s ancestors began irrigating in the Bighorn Basin of Wyoming over six generations ago. She still helps out at the family farm during the summertime, setting tubes, pulling weeds, and operating equipment. She understands well the struggles and rewards people encounter when their livelihoods depend upon the land.
Shaleas comes to WLA with six-plus years of conservation non-profit experience in Wyoming, implementing stewardship projects with landowners and agencies, conserving connected landscapes, and influencing policy. At WLA, she uses her passion for conservation and agriculture to sustain working lands by helping landowners receive compensation and other incentives for land stewardship.
