Joe Moll, Executive director of the McKenzie river Trust will speak.Joe Moll has been Executive Director of McKenzie River Trust since moving to Oregon in January 2005. Since that time the Trust has grown from a staff of 2 to a staff of 12.  

Prior to his move to Oregon, Joe worked in Grizzly Bear Management for the Montana Department of Fish Wildlife, and Parks; in land management and fundraising for the Nature Conservancy of Montana; and in event planning and translation for the University of Montana's Mansfield Center for Asian and Pacific Affairs. 

Originally from Kentucky, Joe graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Economics from Transylvania University and later went on to the University of Montana, Missoula for a graduate degree in Natural Resource Management from the School of Forestry. He has worked on land and wildlife management projects in the west and in Japan over the last 25 years. 

Joe was the founding Board President for the Coalition of Oregon Land Trusts, and was a Kidsports soccer coach for 8 years. He's not sure which of those volunteer service projects involved more difficult cat-herding.
