"The Symposium is tremendously important to the future of all of Utah. You guys are educating stakeholders across Northern Utah in an objective, user-friendly way about issues, problems and concerns that are not being discussed publicly anywhere else."  -Zach Frankel, Utah Rivers Council

Allison Jones

Wild Utah Project (non-profit)
Executive Director
Salt Lake City, UT
Allison currently serves as the Executive Director of Wild Utah Project. Though born and raised In California (B.A in Environmental Studies at U.C. Cruz under the guidance of her mentor and advisor, Michael Soule) she quickly left after graduation. Her path to Utah took her through Reno (M.S in Conservation Biology at UNR) and Denver where she tried out ecological consulting. She and her now-husband made their way to Utah without jobs for the rock climbing and skiing, and are still here now 20 years later. After a quick stint at BioWest in Logan, Allison settled into Wild Utah Project as the staff Conservation Biologist and is still there. At Wild Utah Project she has provided needed biological analyses for other Utah conservation groups (things like status reviews of rare species, and ecological analyses of various federal land management plans and actions), and has conducted various research projects and analyses ranging from Least Cost Path analyses for lynx to the investigation of the interaction of livestock grazing and mechanical sagebrush treatment at Kennecott Utah Copper. Allison has been appointed to UDWR working groups to revise or write wildlife conservation and management plans (Black Bear In 2000 and Wolf in 2004) and currently sits on the state's Sage-grouse Plan Implementation Council.
