Josiah Downey

Washington State Advocate

I am excited to start as the State Advocate for Washington State. I live in Seattle and spend as much of my time as possible exploring all of the open spaces the northwest has to offer from our beautiful coastline and the Salish sea, to the Columbia plateau and the Rockies and everything in between. One thing I see everywhere are the impacts humans are having on the natural environment through recreation. I see this especially focused in the Cascadian Range and municipal parks.  I am hoping to tackle these regions with Leave No Trace messaging for a range of user groups and to do that I will need your help in crafting messaging and getting the word out about Leave No Trace.  I look forward to collaborating!
