Washington Wild Welcomes New Executive Director, Tom Uniack
Washington Wild is pleased to announce that Tom Uniack has assumed the position of Executive Director, effective February 1, 2016. For the past 13 years Tom has served admirably as Washington Wild’s Conservation Director. His leadership role within a core group of both local and regional Wilderness advocates has significantly advanced the protection and restoration of Washington’s wild land and waters. This notably includes successful passage of the Wild Sky Wilderness Act (2008) and the Alpine Lakes Wilderness Additions Act (2014). We are excited about combining organizational and mission leadership in the Executive Director position and believe this step will enhance continued success in protecting wild lands and waters in the beautiful state of Washington, now and for future generations.
