In 2015, American Rivers announced the Connecting Communities to Rivers Grant Program, and we are now excited to announce the seven recipients of the inaugural grant.
Fay works to engage communities in the Intermountain West with the goal of connecting people to nature, stimulating economic growth, bolstering existing land and water conservation efforts, and improving the quality of life for rural communities through the creation of blue trails.
Fay joined American Rivers in 2010. Prior to that she interned with Wisconsin State Representative Cory Mason, and was the Economic Research Assistant for Clean Wisconsin’s water program.
