Bio

Grant is the Senior Manager of Community Outreach at the National Trust, based in the Denver Field Office. His work focuses on creating compelling and engaging campaigns that combine in-person activities and online engagement to save places, while inspiring others to do the same. Grant is the Project Manager for the Veterans Memorial Coliseum (Portland, OR) National Treasure and he serves on several other National Treasure teams.

Grant’s work has taken him from coast to coast, working on ballot initiatives in Houston and Cincinnati, advocacy campaigns in Virginia and Illinois, and outreach efforts in Los Angeles, New York City, and Nashville, among many others. He has driven both a branded cargo van and a 26 foot truck, opened a temporary storefront, and worked backstage at a Gloria Estefan concert, all in the name of saving places.

Grant is proud to be from a Main Street Community and the Black Dirt Capitol of the World—Conrad, Iowa! Now a resident of beautiful Denver, you can most often find him reading, running, or out on the road saving places. You can find him on Twitter and Instagram as @GrantRStevens.
