James Bratton is a natural resources major currently based out of Norman, Oklahoma. James grew up in Atlanta, Georgia and was introduced to the outdoors at a very young age on camping trips throughout the southeast. His passion for the wilderness and environmentalism was forged during summers spent as a backpacking guide in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of northern New Mexico.
James lives in the Greenhouse, Sewanee’s environmental sustainability themed house, works for the Sewanee Outing Program as a part-time work-study and a trip leader, and is an Arcadian tour guide. He has a passion for dinosaurs, pine trees, and Steven Spielberg movies and can be found out on the Domain rock climbing, biking, running, and getting lost on purpose.
During the 2017-2018 academic school year, James will be working to develop and implement creative campaigns that advance sustainability initiatives across campus to increase student participation in sustainability themed activities.
