The West Virginia Land Trust recently hired Brent Bailey as its new executive director.

A native of Parkersburg, Bailey has devoted his career to outdoor education and conservation of natural resources. For almost two decades, he worked internationally on projects ranging from migratory bird conservation to organizing scientific explorations of remote Latin American tropical forests, to national park development in West Africa. 

Most recently, he led a regional conservation, education and community development program for The Mountain Institute. 

Bailey studied biology and French at Kalamazoo College in Michigan, then earned his master's in environmental studies at Yale University. He also holds a Ph.D. in forest resources science from West Virginia University.
