In Memoriam – Joselin Matkins

March 16, 1978 to January 8, 2021

Our beloved Joselin Matkins, our Executive Director, will be remembered for her dedication, passion, and exceptional work in conservation, primarily in the Upper Snake River region in eastern Idaho. She was a loving daughter, partner, mentor, and friend to many. The legacy she leaves behind is a lifetime accomplishment and an amazing gift that all of us and future generations will benefit from.

Our hearts go out to her family, friends, and colleagues as we all try to make sense of this unimaginable loss. The Land Trust is committed to advancing the work Joselin was so passionate about and honoring her memory.

To honor Joselin, a memorial fund has been established, you can learn about the Joselin Matkins Enduring Spirit Fund here.
