Executive Director: Hadley DeBree
Hadley grew up in the Wood River Valley, graduating from Wood River High School. She received a B.A. in Biology-Environmental Studies from Whitman College, and upon graduating, completed two years as an AmeriCorps member for the ERC from 2010-2012, and after a short break, served as the ERC’s Program Director from 2014-2015.
Hadley is excited to be working now as Executive Director, sharing her passion for biology and the environment with the community that initially inspired that love.
In her off time, Hadley enjoys spending time outside hiking and learning more about Idaho’s native flora and fauna, listening to live music with friends, and playing tennis.
Program Director: Alisa McGowan
Alisa grew up in Massachusetts and in 2013 graduated from The University of Vermont with a B.S. in Environmental Science and Water Resources. Between graduating from UVM and beginning work at the ERC, Alisa worked as a naturalist in Colorado, led whitewater rafting trips on the Salmon River, backcountry ski trips throughout the Sawtooth National Recreation Area and outdoor program trips for The Sage School and Community School.
She is most happy when she can share her love for our natural world with others. You can find her skiing powdery slopes, running Sun Valley’s iconic trails or paddling one of the gorgeous local rivers in her free time.
