Martha Brinson, Membership & Operations Manager


Martha Brinson, Membership and Operations ManagerMartha spent most of her childhood in Wisconsin ice skating in the winter and swimming in Lake Michigan in the summer. She eventually landed in Florida where she enjoyed going to the beaches and riding her motorcycle. Her soul was hungry for wild places and cooler weather, so she headed west to Oregon and became a volunteer with Cascadia Wildlands and a Master Gardener. When she’s not being an office nerd running reports and researching, you can find her hiking in the forest, bird watching and stomping around in the garden talking to plants! Email Martha

Nick then traveled west to attend law school at the University of Oregon.
