Quinn Mendelson, Middle Rio Grande Conservation Program Manager
Originally from New England, Quinn moved to New Mexico in 2021. He studied Earth Science & Psychology at Wesleyan University while guiding backpacking trips in the summers. After graduating, Quinn worked on a therapeutic ranch in Colorado before heading back east to work as the Assistant Director of Trip Planning & Logistics at Overland Summers, the company he led trips for as a college student. Whether in the field or managing from an office, Quinn’s work has been centered around young people spending time outdoors in a group environment and the positive growth that comes from those experiences. When not working, he can be found having fun outside and eating as much New Mexican food as possible.
