Stacy Bare serves as the Director of the award-winning Sierra Club Outdoors, which hosts 265,000 people a year in various outings from picnics to major mountaineering and riverine expeditions. The program—the heart and soul of the Sierra Club—includes Military Outdoors, which connects about 13,000 of our service members, veterans, and their families to the great outdoors each year, and Inspiring Connections Outdoors (ICO), which works in more than 50 towns and cities nationwide to connect people and youth to the outdoors who may not otherwise have the opportunities. Along with Dacher Keltner at the University of California-Berkeley, Stacy founded the Great Outdoors Lab to study the physical and mental health benefits of time outside. He is a 2014 National Geographic Adventure of the Year, a brand ambassador for The North Face and Keen Footwear, and a recipient of the Bronze Star for Merit for a year in Iraq as a Captain in the United States Army from 2006-07. He has also worked in humanitarian land mine clearance and is a proud graduate of the Universities of Mississippi and Pennsylvania. A skier and climber who hasn’t surfed in years, he lives in Salt Lake City with his wife Makenzie, a professor at Utah Valley University.
