Eric Schacht

Eric Schacht

Interim Executive Director / Conservation Director

Agriculture and conservation, specifically rangeland management, has played a large role in Eric’s upbringing, education, and professional career. His father is professor of rangeland ecology and management at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL).

Eric received his B.S. in Fisheries and Wildlife Management from UNL and recently received his Master’s Degree in Natural Resources Management from the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Prior to joining the Land Trust, he worked as a graduate research assistant for both the Alaska Department of Fish and Game and the University of Alaska Fairbanks. In addition, Eric’s GIS skills, his former position as a Range Technical Service Provider with the NRCS, and his ranch management experience on a large ranching operation in the heart of the Nebraska Sandhills, will help the Land Trust continue to be a leader in Wyoming Ag conservation, grow new programs and navigate the future conservation landscape.
