Gen Green

Secretary

Gen develops spatially-based solutions for the wide range of conservation challenges that arise when people and nature interact. Her understanding of environmental systems and experience with spatial analysis techniques allow researchers to interpret their data and visualize these interactions. She believes that we have to find new models to balance the competing priorities for resources while also conserving the critical ecosystem services upon which all life depends

“Snowfall, saline minerals, resident and migratory bird habitat and microbialites are all heavily influenced by interactions between the Great Salt Lake and the ever-increasing human desire for resources. We have a great stewardship responsibility both for our generation and generations to come. We live alongside a unique natural wonder; we have much to learn from it. FRIENDs' commitment to understanding Great Salt Lake is essential to insuring that future generations enjoy the same beauty and benefits that we enjoy today."
