Executive Director

Spencer is a passionate advocate for all Americans' access to our public lands. After receiving a B.S. in Environmental Science, Policy and Management from the University of Minnesota, Spencer guided canoe and fishing trips in Minnesota's Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness where he learned the importance of advocating for the protection of wild places first hand.

Spencer has worked alongside hunters, anglers and passionate advocates across the country to design and build advocacy organizations and campaigns which protect public lands and water for future generations. For his work, Spencer received the Sigurd F. Olson award from the Backcountry Hunters & Anglers in 2022, recognizing outstanding effort conserving rivers, lakes and wetland habitat.

When not working for the Wasatch, Spencer is skiing, trail running (mostly speed walking), biking, hunting or fishing somewhere in Utah.
