Christine Quinlan

Associate State Director, Colorado, Conservation Acquisition

Headshot of Christine Quinlan.

Christine 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.

Christine is involved in management of a large cattle ranch in northeast Colorado owned by her family for four generations.  This gives her a strong appreciation for the values of rural landowners and the importance of conserving working landscapes.

Christine serves on the Colorado State Forest Service Stewardship Committee, and is a past chair of the Boulder County Parks & Open Space Advisory Committee.  Christine is a founding member of Resonance Women’s Chorus of Boulder, a 125-voice chorus singing songs of social awareness.

Prior to joining the Fund, Christine worked as a legal assistant for Dietze, Davis and Porter in Boulder.  Christine holds a B.S. in Marketing from the University of Colorado, and an A.S. (Legal Assistant) degree from Wichita State University.
