Paul Sanford is the National Director of Recreation Policy at The Wilderness Society, where he manages TWS’ recreation policy agenda and its programs to connect more people to the outdoors. A native of Cleveland, OH, Paul has a Law degree from the University of Toledo and a Bachelor’s degree from Ohio University. Paul began his recreation career in 2004 as the Policy Director at the American Canoe Association. He came to The Wilderness Society in 2011 because he believes in the deep connection between people and place that is forged by recreation on public lands, and recognizes that people can enjoy wilderness while at the same time ensuring its protection. Paul kayaks regularly on the waters of the Mid-Atlantic region, and rides his bike to work from his home in Alexandria, Virginia as often as possible.
Paul will participate in the Happy Hour on Thursday, Oct. 13, 5 PM at the King’s Grill.
