Robyn Paulekas – Dillon, Colorado
Robyn Paulekas is a Senior Mediator and Program Manager in Meridian’s Dillon, CO office. She has led and supported both domestic and international projects on water, conservation, outdoor recreation, agriculture, and climate change—often working at the nexus of more than one of these issues. One highlight from her recent work was conducting a study and stakeholder engagement for Colorado Department of Natural Resources to explore potential funding models for conservation, outdoor recreation and public lands. Robyn is currently facilitating the Youth Outdoor Policy Partnership—a collaborative effort that aims to advance state policies that increase youth outdoor engagement in schools and communities. She has a deep passion for outdoor engagement as a tool for health, rural economic diversification, and conservation.
Robyn has extensive experience finding and catalyzing collaborative solutions. Prior to Meridian, Robyn applied geospatial information to find solutions to water-related conflict in the Klamath Basin in Oregon. At the University of Wyoming Ruckelshaus Institute of Environment and Natural Resources, she supported multi-stakeholder dialogues on energy, climate change, and endangered species. In her free time, Robyn can be found adventuring in the mountains and on rivers with her husband and their two wild and curious sons.
