Scott is the director of the water stewardship project portfolio at Bonneville Environmental Foundation, where he develops conservation partnerships that improve water stewardship and offers technical and strategic oversight to ensure that these partnerships are effective and aligned with the funding partners’ goals.
Prior to joining Bonneville Environmental Foundation, Scott spent more than two decades working on river restoration throughout the Pacific Northwest. At the Deschutes River Conservancy, he established some of the nation’s first streamflow restoration projects and built a host of collaborative conservation partnerships with cities and irrigators. He later managed regional efforts to restore streamflow throughout the Columbia and Klamath River Basins.
Scott lives in Bend, Ore. and when he’s not working, Scott is either recreating on the region’s rivers or on the snowpack that sustains them as he enjoys skiing, fishing, camping and boating with his family.
