Jason Swann started his new job this month at the Trust for Public Land as Chief Financial Officer of Conservation for Intermountain West.

  • Swann, a leader in conservation and outdoor access, will oversee the creation of new funding for city and state land conservation, parks, climate and equity initiatives in Colorado and other states around the corner.

And after: The resident of the Netherlands is working on voter-approved ballot measures and legislative measures to connect historically disenfranchised communities to nature.

Meet him: Swann was previously a land policy analyst at Western Resource Advocates and was recently appointed by Governor Jared Polis to serve on the Environmental Justice Advisory Council.

  • He spoke to Axios Denver about what drives him:

🥾 Favorite hiking spot: Arapahoe Pass and Lake Dorothy Trail near Nederland. “It’s kind of everything you want out of a hike,” he says.

🌅 Favorite time to be outdoors: “I am a sunrise chaser.” It wakes up as early as 3am to get the best views.

📷 Favorite Equipment: His camera, whether it’s his Fuji X-T2 or his iPhone 13. He enjoys “capturing the outdoors and soaking up those endorphins” at home while editing photos and listening to music.

🎵 Broadcast: Jazz and lo-fi.

📖 Playlist: “Arbitrary Lines: How Zoning Broke America’s City and How to Fix It” and “Autobiography of a Yogi.”
