Annie Whetzel has been active in conservation and wild-lands protection from a young age. She was a participant in the Student Conservation Association in Seward, Alaska and participated in trail management in the lower 48 for many subsequent summers.
She graduated from Colorado College with a degree in biology, and is taking her science knowledge a step further by pursuing a master’s degree in Science Writing.
Annie currently lives in Carbondale, Colorado and enjoys spending time throughout the Rockies. She is often found on her mountain bike or running the nearby trails in the summer, and backcountry skiing in the winter. Fly-fishing is a new sport for her, but is quickly becoming a favorite pastime.
