Sawyer Connelly is the Campus Outreach Coordinator with Backcountry Hunters & Anglers. Originally hailing from the Acadian forests of northern New England, he believes in our hunting and fishing heritage in the traditions of Teddy Roosevelt, protecting Americans birthright to public lands, and civic engagement. He developed a love for the indomitable western landscape, public lands, and wildlife while studying environmental science and English at Colorado College and serving as a research fellow with the Colorado College State of the Rockies Project studying large landscape conservation. In his free time he enjoys time with his German Shorthaired Pointer, Moshup, skiing, hunting, fishing, and biking.
Sawyer was selected to participate in SHIFT’s Emerging Leaders Program in 2016.
