Braden Meyer joined the land trust in 2024 as the Wyss Foundation Conservation Fellow. Originally from Ohio he attended West Virginia University where he received a B.S. in Wildlife and Fisheries Resources. Since arriving in West Virginia, he has developed a deep seated appreciation for the natural beauty and biodiversity the state has to offer.
During his time as a student Braden worked in private environmental consulting focused on identifying and mitigating natural resource issues for industry, government agencies, and non-profit organizations. As part of the Wyss Foundation Fellows Program, he will assist the WVLT in many aspects of land trust work including land protection, stewardship, and landowner relations.
In his free time you can find Braden enjoying the extensive outdoor opportunities the mountains of West Virginia have to offer including hunting, fishing, and backpacking with his dog Indie.
