Welcome to our new Program Directors!

Join us in welcoming the two newest members of the Jackson Hole Land Trust team!


Butch Parks
Wind River Program Director

Butch joined the Land Trust in 2016. Originally from Houston, Texas, Butch graduated from the University of Houston with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering Technology after serving in the Marine Corps. In 1982, his passion for nature brought him to Fremont County and he became attached to the Wyoming landscape for life.

Butch has a diverse background in business ownership and management including ranching, aviation, veterinary medicine, construction, renewable energy, and real estate. Most recently Butch served as the Commercial Property Manager for State Lands and then as the Land Administration Supervisor for Wyoming Game and Fish. Butch holds an Airline Transport Pilot Certificate, Flight Instructor Certificate, and is a licensed Real Estate Broker.

His greatest love is sharing his life with his wife, Sandy, and following the lives of his four children. Butch enjoys sports, hiking, biking, skiing, wildlife viewing, and exploring the world. Working for the Land Trust to conserve the wonders of the Greater Yellowstone is Butch’s dream job. Butch is officially working at the Wind River Program office at 202 East Ramshorn Street in Dubois and can be reached via email at [email protected].
