Shane Barrow is from northern California but now calls Salt Lake City home. After receiving his MS in Natural Resource Management from CSU Sacramento, he spent fifteen years working for the U.S. Bureau of Land Management and numerous land trusts working on public-private partnerships and environmental restoration at the landscape level for upland and wetland systems where he engaged hundreds of international volunteers to work side-by-side with his American staff and volunteers on restoration programs. Diplomacy is a central motivation for Shane, and he uses conservation as the platform to engage with global citizens.
He represented the U.S. Department of State on a Parks and Tourism project with the International Information Program (IIP) in Indonesia, the Young Leaders of the Americas (YLAI) program in Guatemala, and domestically supported the Iraqi Young Leaders Exchange Programs for many years. He has also hosted international visitors in his home from over 70 countries.
During his free time, Shane can be found competing at the national with his Grand Masters Ultimate Frisbee team. He has been married to Anne and has two cool kids.
