Eric Oliver works with Conservation Voters for Idaho, where he serves as a bridge between CVI and rural communities across Idaho by highlighting shared values and collective priorities. His work helps to organize a united conservation front in small towns and big cities alike, ensuring that Idaho’s outdoor way of life will be passed on to future generations.
Before joining CVI’s team, Eric has held a number of diverse roles focusing in one way or another on environmental and social justice, including coordinating programs for youth on public lands with the Idaho Conservation Corps, working alongside human rights defenders with Peace Brigades International, and assisting with advocacy and public education at the Washington Office on Latin America. He grew up in a small woodsy town in New Hampshire, has a B.A. in International Studies from American University, and for the past few years has lived in Boise, ID with his partner and their cat Cecil.
