Former President John Woolley remains as vice president for the coalition, a nonprofit organization based in Quilcene.
Gallant has served as volunteer vice president for several years, handling the group's administrative functions and public relations.
She also serves in another volunteer position, as chairwoman of the Wild Olympics Campaign, seeking to add wilderness and “wild and scenic” river designations on the Olympic Peninsula.
“I look forward to working with the board in the many worthwhile environmental projects of concern to all residents of the Olympic Peninsula,” Gallant said.
The coalition's mission is to promote “the protection, conservation and restoration of natural forest ecosystems and their processes on the Olympic Peninsula, including fish and wildlife habitat, and surrounding ecosystems.”
It initially was organized as the Quilcene Ancient Forest Coalition in 1989 by Alex Bradley and Bob Crowley.
