Sue Bellagamba


Sue received her Bachelors of Science from Colorado State University in the College of Natural Resource in 1979. Shortly after graduating she arrived in Moab to work for the Bureau of Land Management as a Westwater River Ranger which began her love of the red rock desert and its rivers.  In the mid 1980s, she joined the staff of a new non-profit, Canyonlands Field Institute, and was instrumental in developing their River Rescue workshops.  Sue has served two terms as a member of the Board of Trustees of Canyonlands Natural History Association. Currently she serves as Chair of the Board of Trustees for the Friends of Arches and Canyonlands National Park, a nonprofit based in Moab Utah. Sue joined the board of the Tamarisk Coalition in spring of 2010 and is proud to be associated with an organization that works to restore riparian vegetation along our rivers.

Passionate about the lands and waters of the Colorado Plateau, Sue now works for The Nature Conservancy as the Canyonlands Regional Director. When not working Sue enjoys back packing, hiking and river running the canyons, mountains and waters of southeastern Utah. 

RiversEdge West's

mission is to advance the restoration of riparian lands through collaboration, education, and technical assistance.
