Cory MacNulty’s role as Campaign Director for the Southwest Region of National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) is to serve as a lead strategist in protecting the scenic views, air and water quality, natural quiet, dark night skies and visitor experiences in the national parks of the Southwest Region with an emphasis on the 13 national parks in Utah.

She specializes in stakeholder collaboration, particularly with gateway community, state and regional leaders, to identify opportunities and creative solutions to threats facing our parks. Cory’s deep commitment to conservation and love of national parks has grown from many years of working with the National Park Service (NPS) as a park ranger at Isle Royale National Park, several years conducting wildlife research in multiple NPS units, and finally advocating for park protection for 20 years – first in northern Minnesota for Voyageurs National Park Association then with NPCA in the Southwest. She has a Bachelor of Science degree in Geography and Environmental Studies from the University of Wisconsin and a Master of Science degree in Conservation Biology from the University of Minnesota.
