She lives in the beautiful Goldstream Valley with her husband and two dogs and loves recreating outdoors no matter the season. Jen started volunteering with the Land Trust in 2016, and  enjoyed the group and the organization so much that she joined on as a board member in 2017.


Seth Adams, Member at-large

Seth was born and raised in Fairbanks. With an education in biology from UAF and the University of British Columbia, Seth works as a writer and photographer, filling in the gaps with work as a carpenter. In his free time playing outside is the priority: Seth’s primary goal in working with the Land Trust is to resolve trail issues around Fairbanks. Protecting Fairbanks’ complex (and often chaotic) trail network equates to protecting quality of life. (907) 590-5009 • 1212 Denali Way, Fairbanks, AK 99701
