Driftless Area Land Conservancy
Natasha Rank
Operations Manager & Conservation Assistant


Natasha joined DALC in May of 2015 as the Office Manager & Accreditation Coordinator.  Managing day to day operations and leading the coordination of the accreditation process for DALC are currently key roles for her.  She grew up in Minnesota exploring the outdoors with her grandfathers; fishing, hiking, hunting, agriculture and gained a love for nature through 4-H, science & biology classes and just being an adventurous kid.  UW-Stevens Point is where she earned her Bachelor of Science Degree in Wildlife Management.  Over 20 years ago, she and her husband made the journey to the Driftless Area and still marvel at the diversity and uniqueness of the landscape.  Areas of interest are birdwatching, reading a real book, gardening (Master Gardener volunteer), photography and cooking.  “Being part of a non-profit team that focuses on conservation is fulfilling; people may change the land yet deep down, the land stays the same.”
