Mitch Doherty is Vital Ground’s Conservation Manager. Mitch is originally from Wisconsin where he earned a degree in geography from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. For more than 15 years, Mitch has called Montana home, where he works collaboratively on projects involving forest, range, riparian and weed management. He has a rich history in land-use planning and land-management experience. Mitch, along with his wife, Jennifer, and their two young kids, Donovan and Gillian, enjoy all that mountain life has to offer including hiking and biking the local trails, rafting regional rivers, camping in those little-known spots, soaking in the hottest hot springs and skiing in deep powder stashes, wherever they can be found. Mitch is the principal contact for new and current lands projects.
