2022 Keynote Speakers
Hilary S. Franz
Commissioner of Public Lands
Elected in 2016, Commissioner of Public Lands Hilary Franz protects and manages nearly six million acres of public lands in Washington State – from coastal waters and aquatic reserves, to working forests and farms, to commercial developments and recreation areas. Commissioner Franz is committed to ensuring our public lands are healthy and productive, both today and for future generations.
She is leading the push to make Washington’s lands resilient in the face of climate change, investing in carbon sequestration and clean energy with wind, solar, and geothermal infrastructure.
As the leader of our state’s largest wildfire fighting force, she has pushed for new strategies, innovations, and resources to protect our communities.
Hilary is a third-generation farmer and small forest landowner, and has raised three wonderful boys. She holds a bachelor’s degree from Smith College and a juris doctor from Northeastern University Law School.
