BOISE — The Idaho Conservation League is pleased to announce that Dainee Gibson and Katie Jay have both joined the Boise office. 

After her bachelor’s degree in biology and sustainability science from Furman University, Dainee Gibson packed up and moved to Pocatello, where she obtained a master’s degree from Idaho State University. Her research at ISU consisted of using a social-ecological approach to identify conservation opportunities within the Portneuf River watershed. As ICL’s conservation analyst, Dainee will use her analytical skills to support work to help combat climate change.

ICL’s Data Development Assistant Katie Jay has a strong background in working with community-centered organizations. After graduating from Seattle University with a degree in English and creative writing, Katie moved to Boise where she has worked with donors and volunteers at a variety of nonprofits including The Discovery Center of Idaho, the Treasure Valley YMCA, and Zoo Boise.


The Idaho Conservation League is Idaho’s leading voice for conservation. ICL works to protect the air you breathe, the water you drink, and the land you love.
