Staff and Board

Mikayla Moss, Executive Director

Mikayla grew up in the mountains of Southwest Colorado, just outside of Durango, spending most of her weekends exploring the San Juan mountains or the Canyonlands of Utah. She went on to receive her BS in Natural Resources Management from Colorado State University with a minor in Ecological Restoration. After spending time in Bozeman and Missoula, Mikayla fell in love with Montana and decided to make her way back to pursue her career in conservation. Since arriving, Mikayla has developed a deep passion for the Breaks and for the critical work done by the Friends of the Missouri Breaks Monument. On her days off you can find Mikayla hiking, biking, climbing, or relaxing on the water with a good book.

Ethan Weisgerber, Big Sky Watershed Corps Member

Ethan grew up in Indiana with a deep passion for the outdoors and wildlife conservation while growing up on his family's hunting/farm land. This passion led him to pursue a BS in Biology with a focus in wildlife ecology from Marian University-Indianapolis. Upon graduation, Ethan entered the conservation field by taking a crew position in California assisting the BLM and Joshua Tree National Park with ecological restoration before following his dream of moving to Montana where he served a MCC term with Montana Fish, Wildlife, & Parks on their first ever AIS-Herpetology team. He is excited to join the Friends of the Missouri Breaks and to learn more about the conservation practices pertaining to the watersheds of Montana. When not working, you can find Ethan hunting, fly fishing, rafting, or hiking the endless wilderness that Montana has to offer.
