Patrick Harrington, Program Director

I’m Patrick Harrington, Program Director at the Wyoming Conservation Corps. In 2010 I ditched my Oregon or Bust plans for a crew member position with the WCC and have been doing whatever I can to stick around since then. As the head administrator of the WCC my goals are to create a culture of safety and growth, and to expand the capacity of the WCC to serve as many members and partners as we can. In my spare time I sing for the Libby Creek Original, serve of several state-wide committees, and care deeply about conservation. -- EMAIL:


Evan Townsend, Project Coordinator (WyVTC and Education)

Evan Townsend grew up in East Tennessee where his love for the outdoors started by hiking, climbing, paddling, swimming, and biking the Cumberland, Blue Ridge, and Smoky Mountains. After completing his undergraduate degree, he headed "out West" to work for conservation corps. The conservation corps life launched him on a long six year journey traveling the country teaching, building trails, conserving wild and local places, and getting outside as much as possible while working for various corps, trail building companies, and environmental education centers. Evan landed in Wyoming where he earned his double master's in Environment and Natural Resources/American Studies and he just can't leave! Working for the WCC allows Evan to indulge in his obsession with education and leadership pedagogy while working outside to improve landscapes. He could think of no greater job. -- EMAIL:


Jim Fried, Field Supervisor (Recruiting and Field Operations)

Jim Fried grew up in St. Louis, Missouri where his love for the outdoors was born. The woods and beautiful places instilled a desire for nature and a yearning for more. Jim graduated with a Double major in Geography and Environment and Natural Resources. He has been with the program since the summer of 2012 where he started out as a crew member. His desire for hard work and living in the outdoors was shaped by that amazing first season with the Wyoming Conservation Corps. Since then he has elevated to the position of Crew Leader, and currently the Field Supervisor. -- EMAIL:
