By Tim Copeland, Executive Director
A lifelong resident of Maine, Jason Bulay came to Walla Walla and the Blue Mountain Land Trust this month after spending the summer of 2015 hiking the entire Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada.
Jason holds a Bachelors of Science degree in Parks, Recreation, & Tourism from the University of Maine, a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Maine School of Law, and a passion for protecting natural and working landscapes. He is also a hiking enthusiast who has logged over 5,000 backpacking mile including a 1999 thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail.
Jason first became involved with land conservation professionally with the Belgrade Regional Conservation Alliance, a land trust in central Maine where he worked for five years in the conservation and stewardship departments.
He lives in Walla Walla with his wife Catie, a speech pathologist who holds a graduate degree from the University of Oregon.
