Nick Norton

Conservation projects manager

Nick Norton joined the Palouse Land Trust in the fall of 2015, and brings experience in environmental education, organic agriculture, and plant ecology.  He grew up exploring the Palouse region and ultimately returned to the area where he received an M.S. in Plant Biology from Washington State University in 2014.  Before joining the Land Trust, Nick was working at the University of Idaho as a Research Scientist working to develop better landscape scale approaches to invasive plant management.  Nick is excited about working with landowners and other partners to increase opportunities to preserve the special places that make the Palouse unique.  When not on the job, Nick can be found rafting whitewater across the Pacific Northwest, exploring new trails on foot or with skies, and tending to his garden.
