SXSW Eco Advisory Board - Kelly Cash
Communications Director | Western Landowners Alliance

Kelly Cash is the Communications Director for the nonprofit Western Landowners Alliance, a community of conservation-minded landowners who collectively manage over 14 million acres of the American West, and who promote policies, practices and dialogue aimed at increasing land health, climate resilience and rural economic prosperity. Think of them as the "Anti-Bundys." She spent two decades as a key brand builder for The Nature Conservancy, from the California state level to international campaigns. She is an original member of the "Radical Center," and helped pioneer “Collaborative Conservation” on working landscapes. At her small consulting business her clients include Lava Lake Lamb, the American Forest Foundation, Get Gone Traveler and the Bay Area Open Space Council. She serves on the California Rangeland Trust's Legacy Council and the board of The Pacific Institute. You can find her at the "Monkey House" in Berkeley, CA, telling stories as "Lone Star in the People's Republic," or at her favorite spot, a thirty-three acre “micro farm” owned by her sister and brother-in-law at the top of the Texas Hill Country.
