Nick Warren, Development & Operations Manager
Nick Warren manages the development and office management areas of the Foundation. He joined the Portland Parks Foundation in 2014.
Before working with us, Nick earned a BS in Environmental Studies, Political Science, and Economics from the University of Oregon. While attending college, he dedicated himself to environmental protection – facilitating trainings, attending workshops, and volunteering around campus and in the Eugene community. Nick worked on a number of environmental campaigns, including ending the purchase of single-use plastic water bottles and pushing for environmentally-sustainable investment practices. His activities led him to believe that everybody should have access to green spaces. After Nick finished school, he worked in Eugene non-profits before making his way north to Portland.
Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, Nick loves backpacking in old growth forests and camping along the meditative Oregon coast. His love of the outdoors influences his city life, and you’ll see Nick biking between Portland parks on every day of the year.
