Joel Webster joined the TRCP in 2007 and has spent much of the past 15 years working alongside hunting and fishing groups, wildlife managers, decision makers and agency leaders to shape federal public lands management for the benefit of fish, wildlife and sportsmen.
Born and raised in the West, Webster is committed to hunter/angler issues and has been since he was first old enough to carry a rifle.
During his time with TRCP, he has been intimately involved in the development of the Idaho and Colorado roadless rules and the creation of the 2012 National Forest Planning Rule. He also works alongside the TRCP Western team to balance public lands energy development with other resources, safeguard big game migration corridors, expand public access, and conserve unfragmented fish and wildlife habitat on public land managed by the BLM and U.S. Forest Service.
Webster lives in Missoula, Mont., and earned a Masters of Environmental Studies at the University of Montana.
