Kaylan’s responsibilities include serving as the contact for initial inquiries from landowners, analyzing prospective and current land transactions, and working directly with landowners to draft land conservation agreements (conservation easements) and to ensure the land is in proper condition for a successful land conservation agreement based on Conservancy standards and Land Trust Alliance best practices.

Before joining the Conservancy in 2019, she worked at the Wyoming Natural Diversity Database (Wyoming’s Natural Heritage Program) as Species Information Coordinator, and before that as an Office Associate and Research Technician at the Wyoming Cooperative Fish & Wildlife Research Unit.
