Emily Williams

Emily grew up chasing her family as they were kayaking rivers, climbing peaks, and skiing the powder of Central Idaho. Her passion for the environment grew as she did, deepening with every new adventure. When she discovered the rivers were being dammed for hydropower, snow forecasts were predicted to decrease due to climate change, and public lands were threatening to disappear to private interests, she knew she had to take action.

She earned a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies and Peace and Justice Studies from Tufts University in 2015. She has worked as a Conservation Associate with the Idaho Conservation League to increase awareness and inspire action to protect our natural world through public advocacy campaigns and as director of the Central Idaho Wilderness Steward Program.

Emily aspires to continue growing an influential community to confront the critical environmental crises of our time, from climate change to water scarcity.
