Eagle River Watershed Council is pleased to announce the selection of Kate Isaacson as their new Projects and Events Coordinator.

Kate was chosen for this role because of her enthusiasm for environmental sustainability as well as her administrative skills and experience with event planning.   Her interest in conservation grew immensely in Boulder, CO where she earned a B.S. in Business Administration along with a minor in Japanese, at the University of Colorado.   After graduating, Kate headed for the mountains to pursue her love of all things outdoors.  She spent a season working with the Village at Copper gaining experience with their major summer events such as Copper County, Guitar Town, 3 Ring Weekend, etc. There she met her husband, Drew, who is her partner in all their fun adventures including: backpacking, rock climbing, backcountry snowboarding, snowmobiling, biking, a few attempts at surfing, and more.

Kate joins Holly Loff, Executive Director of the Watershed Council, as well as Lizzie Schoder who serves as the Watershed Council’s Education and Outreach Manager.

“Kate is a great match for our team with her passion for conservation and love of the outdoors.  Her organizational skills will make planning and implementing our river restoration projects seamless and will keep our events, such as the annual Highway and River Cleanups, running smoothly with fun new twists to make our volunteers feel appreciated,” said Loff. “We are really happy to have her on board.”

Eagle River Watershed Council encourages the community to meet Kate Isaacson during upcoming volunteer projects, including the Miller Ranch Open Space Riverside Restoration Project on Thursday, August 24th and Friday, August 25th in Edwards and the 24th Annual Eagle River Cleanup on Saturday, September 8th.
