Christine QuinlanChristine joined the Fund in 1998 and facilitates conservation projects across Colorado.  She has also worked in Wyoming and Nebraska.  Christine has worked extensively with federal, state and local partners on projects to expand national parks and other federally protected areas, create new state parks, and preserve local open space along Colorado’s rapidly growing Front Range.
