Mary O’Brien is a botanist who has worked for toxics reform, environmental law, and public lands conservation organizations for 40 years. In December 2021, Mary left her 17-year position as Utah Public Lands Director for Grand Canyon Trust, a Colorado Plateau regional conservation organization. She founded Project Eleven Hundred in January 2021 as a small nonprofit working to end permitting of honey bee apiaries on Forest Service and BLM lands on the Colorado Plateau, because the hive-based, non-native honey bees out-compete native bees and transmit diseases to them.  Mary enjoys working with various Broadbands on public lands livestock grazing issues, as well.
