Elizabeth Fairbank

Road Ecologist

Liz is delighted to be part of the Corridors and Crossings Team at the Center, where she works on issues surrounding habitat connectivity and road ecology.

While in Missoula during college, Liz fell head-over-heels for the Northern Rockies landscape: the amazing places, tight-knit communities, spectacular wildlife, and abounding recreational opportunities. Since graduate school, her work has been focused on habitat connectivity and road ecology research. Liz worked for the Western Transportation Institute for several years, during which time she contributed to road ecology research projects in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, and Nebraska. She then spent two years working for the Northern Rockies Conservation Cooperative researching the impacts of roads on ungulate migration routes in western Wyoming.

In her free time Liz loves to get outside with her dogs-hiking, climbing, and kayaking.
