|11/14/2013||Lawyer Mike Downey joins staff of San Isabel Land Protection Trust|
Mike Downey has joined the San Isabel Land Protection Trust team as Land Protection Specialist thanks to a Colorado Open Lands Fellowship Program grant and from the support of individual donors.
The two-year program matches great, young talent with leading organizations that can meaningfully advance their work with the addition of a highly qualified staff member.
Downey will serve as a specialist in land protection and conservation easement stewardship. He will work with landowners to protect the most important and productive ranches, forests, and waters in our region, at a time when development pressures, and the complexities of conservation, are increasing.
Downey served as an intern for four summers at SILPT while attending University of California – Los Angeles where he received his undergraduate degrees in Political Science and Geography/Environmental Studies. In 2012, Mike graduated from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, and is licensed to practice in Colorado.
His grandfather is former Custer County Commissioner Dick Downey of rural Westcliffe.
