Jon Leibowitz joined Northeast Wilderness Trust in 2017 to serve as Executive Director.  He served as the Executive Director of the Montezuma Land Conservancy in the Four Corners region of Colorado.  During his time at Montezuma Land Conservancy, he completed 23 conservation easement transactions that protected over 13,000 acres and also lead the organization in expanding its mission through the implementation of outdoor-focused educational programming.  

Joining NWT is a return to New England for Jon and his family.  He earned a Masters in Environmental Law and Policy and a Juris Doctor from Vermont Law School.  In his spare time, Jon enjoys hiking and long distance backpacking and has completed the Long Trail.  Upon trading the dry desert canyon country of the Four Corners for New England, he looks forward to many years of exploring the Northern Forest’s wild areas.
