Susan Tixier, former Board Member

Born and raised in Aspen, Colorado, Susan has spent her lifetime exploring the American West and defending its wilderness character. With a law degree from the University of New Mexico, Susan worked in the New Mexico legislature, served as editor of the New Mexico Environmental Law Journal and worked for former New Mexico Governor Anaya as an environmental policy aide. She was on the founding board of the Forest Guardians (now WildEarth Guardians) before moving to Utah to serve as the associate executive director to the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance. While with SUWA, Susan founded the Great Old Broads for Wilderness. Eventually Susan moved to Boulder, Colorado to join the founding board of the nonprofit environmental law group, the Land and Water Fund of the Rockies, that has since become the Western Resources Advocates. Years later, Susan became the executive director of the Colorado Environmental Coalition, now Conservation Colorado. Somewhere in her service to the environment, Susan found time to pick up two Masters' Degrees at St. John's College in Eastern and Western philosophy. Susan now lives in Pinedale, Wyoming and is plotting her next life adventure.

...
As the Aspens begin their Autumnal journey, transforming into dancing lights of gold, so too does our beloved Susan Tixier.
On October 8th, Susan passed peacefully in her sleep to begin her ultimate adventure. Susan had unique philosophies, a contagious laugh, was a boundless enthusiast with limitless energy. Her love of the outdoors was only surpassed by her love for her children, granddaughter and great grandchildren. She was a marathon runner, rock climber, fly fisher, hiker, skier, activist, mentor and student of life. She held several degrees including Magna Cum Laude Law Degree from the University of New Mexico and two Masters Degrees from St. John's College. Susan was a lover of life and unstoppable; she will be greatly missed by those she touched. Her legacy lives on. Soar high with the eagles, Susan. We love you.
- Obituary in the Santa Fe New Mexican, October 14, 2015. --------------
As Executive Director of Conservation Colorado's preceding organization, Colorado Environmental Coalition (CEC), from 1997-1999, Susan helped us grow from a small band of passionate and dedicated supporters into a successful and effective organization. She was intimately involved with wilderness and land protection efforts across the West, and, in addition to her work at CEC, led groups like Great Old Broads for Wilderness and the Southern Utah Wilderness to protect the places that feed our souls.
