We are excited to announce that Tyonek Tribal Conservation District (TTCD) has selected its next Executive Director. Welcome to Dr. Laurie Stuart. 

Dr. Stuart is an experienced nonprofit executive with more than 10 years of leadership roles in science education, conservation, and nonprofit management. She comes to TTCD after serving as a Director at Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, and has previously held leadership positions at the Pratt Museum in Homer and at the Alaska SeaLife Center in Seward. A life-long Alaskan, Dr. Stuart earned her Doctorate of Education from the University of Missouri, with an emphasis on sustainability, social justice, and participatory methods in natural resource management. “My work has focused on fostering pro-conservation identity and behavior, with an understanding that effective conservation policies must be community based”, says Dr. Stuart. “I am excited by the opportunity to advance TTCD’s mission to collaboratively manage the district’s natural resources for the benefit of the people who depend upon and steward them.”

We are proud to have supported TTCD’s efforts in finding a new leader through our Leadership Transition services.
