Staff

 

David Brooks

Executive Director

david@montanatu.org

David Brooks most recently served Montana TU as Conservation Director and has since taken the position of Montana TU Executive Director in May, 2017. He looks forward to applying his background as an environmental historian studying Superfund sites and watershed issues to MTU’s current and future mission of conserving and restoring the state’s coldwater fisheries. As part of earning his PhD in history at the University of Montana, David wrote the book on Superfund cleanup of the Milltown Dam site on the Clark Fork. Since moving to Missoula in 2000, he has walked, jogged, peddled, paddled, rowed, hunted, skied and ogled as many wild places and open spaces in the state as possible, most enjoyably when he’s in the company of his wife, daughter, dog, and friends.
