Board Member Biographies

Caroline Bauman, President 

Caroline grew up in the Midwest and fell in love with the outdoors while in college in the upper Midwest.  She has lived on the Oregon Coast outside of Yachats, Oregon since 1985.  She has been active in conservation issues since the contentious years of the spotted owl and the Northwest Forest Plan in the 90’s.  She realized the need for a way for private landowners to engage in land conservation and became one of the founding Board members of the Central Coast Land Conservancy.  Since then, she has served on the Board.  In her day job, she is the Executive Director of the Economic Development Alliance of Lincoln County and is also interested in music and theater.
