Ethan Mansfield
After graduating from Whitman College in 2011, Ethan worked for a summer in Stanley, Idaho, keeping aquatic invasive species out of Redfish Lake, an outdoor playground nestled at the foot of the Sawtooth mountains. Ethan migrated to Breckenridge, Colorado for the winter, where he experienced a completely different version of mountain culture. After his disparate experiences in two mountain paradises, he was inspired to find out how and why these two towns in a similar mountain setting were so different. This, in turn, led him to the field of planning. He is now a graduate student in the Bioregional Planning Program at the University of Idaho and still enjoys cavorting about in mountains and canyons of the intermountain west. His professional interests include economic development planning, natural resource planning, and sustainable transportation planning.

Liz Boyden
BIOP Student
Liz is working towards getting a Masters in Bioregional Planning with an emphasis in hazard mitigation and adaptation planning. She has a B.S. in Resource, Recreation, and Tourism and a B.S. in Political Science. She also has a minor in Parks, Protected Areas, and Wilderness Areas. She is looking to compare local climate change and hazard mitigation plans internationally and integrating hazard mitigation into comprehensive plans in the U.S. for her thesis. The areas she wants to concentrate on are the United States, more specifically lower Boise, ID, Canada, Germany, and Sweden. In collaboration with her Master's, she plans to get a GIS Certificate. She is also currently a Research Assistant in the Geography Department, completing work for Idaho Department of Health and Welfare. Currently, she is completing hazard overlays in GIS, which analyze multiple hazards, examining which populations and types of landcover are located within the hazard zones. She is completing this analysis for Health District 6 and her results are going towards an overall risk assessment, which incorporates multiple other parts being completed by other students and researchers. She loves nature and anything to do with the outdoors.
