Paul Hansen: New Executive Director of Murie Center

The Murie Center recently announced Paul Walden Hansen as its new executive director, which will lead implementation of its new mission and strategic plan.

Paul Hansen, author of TAMU Press book Green in Gridlock: Common Goals, Common Ground and Compromise (TAMU Press, 2014), is former director of The Nature Conservancy’s Greater Yellowstone Program, and former executive director of the Izaak Walton League. He has won some of America’s top environmental leadership awards.

“Paul is the perfect person for this position,” said Nancy Leon, Murie Center board co-chair. “There is no conservationist in America who is better qualified to interpret the Murie legacy in the search for 21st century conservation issue solutions.”

The Murie Center’s mission is: Bringing people together to inspire action that preserves nature. “We accomplish this by bringing the lessons of the Murie legacy to people all over America, by bringing people here to find common ground on vital issues, and by training young conservation leaders,” said Scott Fossel, Murie Center board co-chair.

The Murie Center is located in Grand Teton National Park, in close proximity to the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center in Moose. The grounds are always open to the public and visitors are welcome at any time. Organized tours, special programs, and events vary by season.
