Steve Whitney

Senior Program Officer - The Bullitt Foundation

Steve was invited to join the Bullitt Foundation as Program Officer in 2000 after spending fourteen years with The Wilderness Society as director of its National Parks Program, Northwest Regional Director, and Deputy Vice President for Regional Conservation. This work built on the time he had already spent in Washington D.C. as a public lands activist and lobbyist with the National Parks Conservation Association, and as legislative Aide to then-Representative Leon Panetta. Steve has substantial non-profit board experience, and is the immediate past President of the board of the Consultative Group on Biological Diversity, a national association of environmental foundations.
