Sheridan Community Land Trust Board and Staff

Our Staff & Board of Directors

Since its inception in 2005, SCLT has grown from an all volunteer organization to a (501)c(3) nonprofit with a variety of staff, a dedicated Board of Directors, and many volunteers. We are thrilled to be tasked with the conservation of Sheridan County’s iconic working ranches, healthy rivers and streams, open spaces, and historic sites, as well as create new recreation opportunities to connect current and future generations with the natural environment.

Jared first encountered SCLT while attending a volunteer work day at Red Grade Trails. He had recently gotten into mountain biking and was excited to find a community organization that matched his passion for people-powered outdoor recreation. He later worked as a season trail technician and continued to volunteer. In May 2023, he joined full-time as SCLT’s first-ever, year-round Recreation Program Manager. He is excited to help people find their passion for exploring our beautiful Bighorns backyard.

Beth joins SCLT after tenures in the legal field and with Sen. Dave Kinskey. She deeply values connecting to places and people. Growing up a “military nomad,” she is proud to call Sheridan County her “first chosen community.” Beth enjoys connecting with the outdoors by snowshoeing trails with her rescue dog, Clover. She also enjoys cooking, hiking, practicing yoga, and spending time with her friends and family.

Chris comes to SCLT with a background in fisheries science and nearly a decade of experience in community journalism. When looking for a new adventure, he found the land trust’s core missions of conservation, trails and recreation, and historic preservation lined up well with his passion for the outdoors – especially anything fishing. From that first drive up Red Grade to each trip into Tongue Canyon, Chris knew Sheridan was the kind of community to which he wanted to belong.

Glenn Fairbank
Glenn FairbankTrail Technician
Glenn keeps our trails clean and tidy. Glenn leads the charge on mowing to building fences. Glenn is the happy face on the trail. When not keeping the trails in tip-top shape, he’s exploring our Bighorns with his wife, family and friends. Make sure you stop to tell him “hello.”
