Hunter Jones: Conservation Assistant
​Hunter joined the ORLT staff in September 2016. A life-long appreciation of the natural environment encouraged her to pursue a career that enables her to improve it, preserve it for future generations, and interact with it on a daily basis.  A 2015 graduate of the University of Georgia School of Law, where she concentrated in environmental law and policy, she will use her legal training to write conservation easements during the busy fall season. 

Before joining ORLT, Hunter interned at Georgia River Network, the Southern Environmental Law Center, and Chattahoochee Riverkeeper. In addition to legal work, she is an associate at Herdscapes, a prescribed grazing company in Athens that rents goats to sustainably manage land. Hunter is also on the Board of Directors for the Upper Oconee Watershed Network and involved with the Upper Oconee Water Trail.
