Stewardship Director

Mik McKee

Mik joined WRC as a full-time staff member in 2017, though he worked with the organization as a forestry consultant for several years prior to that. While a forester by training, his relationship with rivers began 30 years ago on annual fly fishing trips with his grandfather in Wyoming and Idaho. Mik earned a Master of Forestry degree from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, and he brings more than 15 years of forest management and carbon accounting experience to WRC. Prior to joining the organization, he worked for The Climate Trust, The Sierra Institute, the Bureau of Land Management and the Forest Service. Mik and his wife Caitlin live in the beautiful Upper Hood River Valley, where he spends his free time wrangling their two young daughters, exuberant dog and 10 chickens. Occasionally he manages to get out for a bike ride or ski.
