Matt Wolf



Matt Wolf’s outdoor passions include kayaking, running, and hiking — all with a hefty dose of environmental stewardship. Matt believes that future generations should be ensured of quality outdoor recreational opportunities. With a lot more people arriving in central Ohio, sustaining healthy rivers, parks, and forests will require thoughtful planning and effort.
Matt’s epic experiences include backpacking through Alaska’s Brooks Range, kayaking the Scioto River in Ohio, trail running in the Siskiyou Mountains of Oregon, backpacking in Utah’s Canyonlands, and exploring ice caves in Antarctica. As a small-town Pennsylvania boy, his experiences have afforded him growth and perspective.
He holds a B.S. and M.S. in Meteorology from Penn State. And yes, he is still a Nittany Lion! In his spare time he enjoys volunteering with Keep Columbus Beautiful (a litter education and resource city office) and other civic groups, as well as caring for his historic home in the Harrison West neighborhood of Columbus.
