Local nonprofit announces new hire
Great Old Broads for Wilderness, a national nonprofit based in Durango, recently hired Gary Skiba to direct its
Healthy Lands Project.
Skiba joins the group after completing a 23-year career with the Colorado Division of Wildlife where he was the

focused on conservation planning and management projects for threatened and endangered wildlife species.
Skiba will be directing the operation of the project developed by the group in 2003 to bring together public land
management agencies and local citizen groups concerned with resource conditions and recreational use impacts on
national public lands.
He will be organizing the resource monitoring efforts of more than 20 partner organizations in nine western states
and communicating with numerous public land managers.
