The BHRA board of directors is pleased to announce Anne Marie Emery as the new executive director of the Bighorn River Alliance. Emery is a passionate conservationist who has focused her education and career on preserving and protecting wild trout waters of the west. An Idaho native, Anne Marie received her B.S. in Environmental Studies focused in Conservation Biology from Albertson College of Idaho and has spent the past 12 years as the Conservation Education Biologist for the Henry’s Fork Foundation where she was responsible for implementing on-the-ground research projects pertaining to research and restoration on the Henry’s Fork. In 2010 Anne Marie built an education program for the HFF that has been referenced statewide and nationally by educators. She is also founding board member of the Henry’s Fork Chapter of the Idaho Master Naturalist program- the first chapter organized in the state of Idaho- and has served as group advisor for 8 years. An excellent communicator, Emery is able to combine research with education to optimize conservation efforts in the interest of wild trout and is excited about implementing successful cold water conservation programs that benefit wild trout of the Bighorn River.
