Pamela Eaton, Senior Advisor for the Energy and Climate Program, focuses on developing and implementing an organizational strategy to promote the diversification of fossil fuel-dependent rural economies located on public lands in the West. She will ensure coordinated and effective education and outreach to state energy officials, supporting the national program team in key fights.
Pam previously worked as the regional director of The Wilderness Society's Four Corners States Region and prior to that as program director for Refuges and Wildlife in the Washington, D.C. office.
She received an M.S. in natural resource policy from the University of Michigan’s School of Natural Resources and a B.A. in geology from Yale University.
Exploring wildlands is Pam's passion. Today, that means hiking and camping with her husband and two children in wilderness from Colorado to California.
In the era before kids, Pam worked and played in Alaska at Denali National Park with the Park Service and in the Talkeetna Mountains with the National Outdoor Leadership School and visited the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge several times - including on her honeymoon.
