Heather Hansman is an award-winning journalist whose work has appeared in The Guardian, The Atlantic, Smithsonian and many others. She’s Outside magazine’s online environmental columnist, where she covers the intersection between public land, environmental policy, and human impact. Her recent book “Downriver: Into the Future of Water in the West,”  which is about the Green River, and the future drought, climate change and water policy in the western U.S., has been called “a worthy updating of a core library containing such works as Marc Reisner’s ‘Cadillac Desert,’” and was named one of 2019’s best environmental books of the year by the Chicago Review of Books.
