We’re so excited to welcome Gaylen Beatty as our newest member to our Board of Directors.

Gaylen grew up in Los Angeles, California. Many summers included family camping trips
throughout the west coast and Canada. The privilege of those opportunities guided her life. She
has spent the last 25 years in the fields of conservation, outdoor education, youth corps and
park operations. She also founded the Portland region’s Backyard Habitat Certification Program
in 2006. Gaylen now works for Metro’s Parks and Nature. She manages a dynamic team of
senior regional planners that work on complex projects that focus on cross departmental
integration and collaboration that maximize equitable impacts. She received her
undergraduate degree from Humboldt State University in Oceanography, Masters in Science
Teaching from Portland State University and is honored to be a 2042 fellow for Center for
Diversity and the Environment. In her free time, Gaylen relishes family time at home, in the
garden on a beautiful spring day, or on a mountain enjoying first tracks with her Burton custom
