Bowen is involved with both the Sierra Nevada Energy Watch and Green Communities programs. He is excited to be involved in both ground-level energy audits and community-wide policy and planning. Bowen received his degree in Environmental Studies from the University of Montana in Missoula, where he studied sustainable business management, climate change studies, and environmental philosophy.
During college, he also studied sustainable business practices abroad in New Zealand and Australia and was highly involved in community service projects though his fraternity, Phi Delta Theta.
A man of the mountains at heart, Bowen grew up in Salt Lake City Utah hiking, snowshoeing, biking on and off the road, running, and telemarking. After graduating from college, he spent six weeks backpacking through India and the Himalayan Mountains. Bowen is excited to begin exploring the Sierra Nevada on foot, by bike, and on skis.
