DANA JOHNSON, Staff Attorney
Dana joined Wilderness Watch as our first staff attorney in 2014. Setting her roots at the fringe of Idaho’s Wild Clearwater Country, Dana has provided litigation and general legal support for environmental groups and individual Earth defenders throughout the Northern Rockies since 2010. Dana coordinates Wilderness Watch’s overall litigation strategy, representation in federal court, and cooperation with other attorneys and legal interns.
CLARE MACK, Policy Director/Associate Attorney
Clare joined Wilderness Watch in June 2018. Prior to joining Wilderness Watch, Clare completed a legal fellowship with the Environmental Defense Fund in Boulder, Colorado, focused on habitat, clean air, and clean energy issues. She graduated from the University of Colorado Law School in 2017, where she obtained a certificate in Natural Resources Law and Policy and served as the president of the Environmental Law Society. Clare grew up in Whitefish, Montana, and her love of the outdoors was born while scrambling around the peaks and meadows of Glacier National Park and the Bob Marshall Wilderness. Those wild places—that they may be preserved for others and in their own right—inspire her advocacy for wilderness.
