Will McMullan was elected to the Friends of Bosque del Apache NWR board in 2021. He is a retired consultant with 40+ years of experience in organizational development and environmental services. He first visited Bosque del Apache in 1984 and kept coming back over the next 35 years.
Will hopes to serve as a Board member given the unique, critical and significantly at-risk nature of the Bosque’s habitat and wildlife refuge. He’s interested in applying diverse skills to support the organization in ways that sustain and improve the refuge through greater mission impact. Will’s original technical background is in geology/hydrology/geomorphology, with broad experience in environmental investigations, monitoring, impact analysis and multidisciplinary site evaluations. He’s also a veteran management consultant and group process facilitator who has worked with global businesses in the US and overseas. Will brings skills in strategic planning, organizational change management, training, and business process improvement. He’s a current Board member and the outgoing Chair for Wildlands Restoration Volunteers (CO) and Board member/Secretary for the Taos Land Trust.
Will currently lives in Denver, but is relocating to Taos, NM in Autumn 2021. He’s a happy hiker, backpacker and cross-country skier who’s thankful for any opportunity to get outside. Will is also a perennial student of birding and keeps tinkering with western landscape and wildlife photography in hopes of getting pictures worthy of gracing his refrigerator door.
