Ben Kittell

Ben joined the DRC as a Development and Communications Coordinator in 2023. He is responsible for coordinating ​outreach initiatives, implementing communication strategies to the community, foster donor relations, promote brand visibility, and support fundraising efforts.

Ben has an educational background in Environmental Communications from Colorado State University. For the past decade, he has shared his passion and enthusiasm for Central Oregon’s rivers as a fly fishing guide. It is now Ben’s hope to continue to foster positive relationships with water and community through work in the conservation field. 

The love for the outdoors extends to Ben’s free time as well. When there is snow on the ground, he can be found sliding around in the woods on cross country skis with his wife and dog. As days warm and snow melts, he heads to play on our rivers and dig in his garden.
