Staff & Board of Directors

Since its inception in 2005, SCLT has grown from an all volunteer organization to a (501)c(3) nonprofit with two full time staff members, a Board of Directors composed of twelve talented and dedicated community members, 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.

Brad Bauer
Executive Director

Alt TextAs the Executive Director for the Sheridan Community Land Trust, Brad is lucky to work with a great staff and Board of Directors.  Sheridan Community Land Trust’s focus on access, conservation, and history all resonate with Brad.  Originally from eastern Iowa, his entire professional career has been in conservation and natural resources in the West.  Prior to joining Sheridan Community Land Trust, Brad worked for Montana State University Extension and with The Nature Conservancy in Montana.  Brad enjoys being outside and can often be found on a bicycle, spending the weekend hunting, or locating new places to camp.

Chris Vrba
Director of Marketing and Development

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.

Tami Sorenson
Trails Manager

Tami designs trails, wrangles volunteers, and brings a polished shine to new trail construction.  Originally from MN, Tami headed west for adventure and can’t remember a time when being active outdoors was not a driving force in her life. Tami and her husband Jim landed in Sheridan 22 years ago. In that time they’ve gotten to know and love Sheridan’s outdoor spaces well. Gravitating towards SCLT came naturally and Tami is thrilled to help enhance outdoor recreation opportunities for her community.


Candice Casey
Operations Manager

Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, Candice, her husband and son moved to Big Horn in 2004.  Candice loves hiking and spends as much time outdoors as possible during the short summer season.  She also enjoys travel, cooking foods of many cultures and reading (especially if it involves sitting by a stream or lake.).  She feels fortunate to work for SCLT, learning more every day and being part of the local community’s conservation efforts by managing projects and office operations.  Candice has a bachlor’s degree from Cal State Hayward and her favorite career experiences range from education planning specialist at Children’s Medical Center Oakland to paralegal management and operations/HR management in investment banking in San Francisco.
