Argust was previously a project director with Pew’s U.S. public lands program and senior legislative representative for the Campaign for America’s Wilderness. She guided policy on Pew’s land protection efforts, and coordinated diverse stakeholders in campaigns in several states, and helped to enact several major public lands and recreation bills.
