Haley Gamertsfelder, Field Coordinator

Haley Gamertsfelder (she/her) grew up in the mid-Atlantic, with the privilege of frequent visits out west where she was left awestruck by bears and geysers in Yellowstone, towering granite faces in Yosemite, and wide sweeping valleys dotted with mesas in the Southwest. She went on to pursue a degree in Environmental Science and Technology from the University of Maryland. Following college she traveled abroad with her sister for 4 months. In 2018 she moved to Montana for a 3 month long internship and hasn’t left since. She considers herself lucky to have been involved in many facets of western Montana conservation, from the wilderness of the Montana/Idaho border to the seldom visited middle fork of the Flathead in Glacier National Park.

Michael McDaniel, Field Coordinator

Michael “Peacock” McDaniel grew up in Kansas City, Missouri. He left home to voyage across international borders during his young adulthood, traveling to all continents but Antartica. In 2015, he stumbled upon the Appalachian Trail, an adventure so grand it became the basis for a nearly decade long love affair with long distance hiking. He moved to Colorado later that year and began exploring many of America’s long distance trails, including the Continental Divide Trail.

Michael currently resides in Salida, CO and can be reached at [email protected]
