Joshua Mantell came to The Wilderness Society in Fall 2011 as Rapid Response Specialist. Joshua works with both the Policy and Communications Department to quickly release important messages on issues pertaining to the House and the Senate.
Joshua came to The Wilderness Society from Capitol Hill where he worked for the Green the Capitol Office. At the Green the Capitol office, he was intimately involved in working with Representatives' offices in becoming more energy efficient and resource conscious.
As someone who grew up in Northern California, Joshua learned to love public lands through his many visits to the great National Parks close to home, such as Yosemite and Big Sur National Park. While he has lived in Washington D.C. since graduating from UC Santa Barbara in 2007, California and its beauty will always hold a special place for Joshua.
