Clinton has a passion for whitewater paddling and river stewardship, and has a long history of support and involvement with American Whitewater. He has had a personal and enduring connection to several river stewardship projects across the country, including spending the last 7 years working on land and river stewardship issues in the Willamette River Basin of Western Oregon as the Executive Director of the Long Tom Watershed Council in Eugene. Clinton has always been most interested in the human dimensions of natural resources, and how people’s personalities, values, and motivations to experience the outdoors guide their activities and stewardship behaviors.
He’s been a volunteer and American Whitewater Streamkeeper since 2004, helping to add and update reaches to the National Whitewater Inventory, participated in letter writing to elected officials, testified in a state committee on behalf of American Whitewater priorities, and has helped organize local AW fundraisers and events.
Clinton will begin his Executive Director role on August 1 and plans to travel to American Whitewater events this summer and fall to meet up with our staff, volunteers, members and supporters in their home regions.
