Executive Director: Hadley DeBreehadley

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.
