Allayana Darrow, Communications Associate
As Communications Associate, Allayana Darrow works with our communications team to document and spread awareness of Lomakatsi’s work in the forests and watersheds of Oregon and northern California, improving community understanding of our interconnectedness with the landscapes we call home.
Allayana joined the Lomakatsi team in March 2022 with a background in print news, public relations, and communications for her family’s micro-vineyard in Ashland. She previously reported on staff for the Medford Mail Tribune in Oregon and The Sheridan Press in Wyoming, and interned with the City of Bellingham and Whatcom Land Trust while obtaining a bachelor’s degree in Journalism-Public Relations at Western Washington University.
In her role, Allayana strives to connect with others through shared interests in the health and sustainability of our natural resources, support Lomakatsi technicians and crews by sharing the benefits of their work with the community, and lift up our values of diversity, equity and inclusion at every step.
Allayana’s favorite part of her job is writing stories about restoration projects and learning from a diverse team of partners, experts and tribal leaders about how to responsibly steward the land. Outside of work, find her painting, walking in nature, meditating or training with her dog.
