Daniel Schwab was raised in Star Valley, Wyoming. From a very young age, he developed a passion for the outdoors. He began his post-high school education in 1983 at Ricks College but left soon after to dedicate 18 months of his life as a full-time missionary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. When he returned home from his mission, he attended Utah State University with a focus on business and financial management. Shortly after college, Schwab started several successful start-up companies. One of which specialized in ranch land restoration and preservation, with further focus on fish and wildlife habitat restoration. In 1997, the business began to acquire distressed ranches in Wyoming and Idaho. They implemented their restoration and preservation concept by working with specialists to engineer, design, permit, and implement plans to restore fish habitat by enhancing spring creeks and improving the overall land quality for the native wildlife on the property. By 2002, Schwab’s companies were the largest landowners in Lincoln County, Wyoming, and were numbered among the largest landowners in the State of Wyoming, controlling over 80,000 acres. To date, his businesses have exceeded $182 million in acquisition and land sales. Schwab continues to focus on improving the land and fisheries to make them more welcoming to the native wildlife. His business model and land-restoration concepts have caught the attention of noted magazines, receiving national recognition. Daniel is a current ranch owner with approximately 30 years of experience specializing in property research, acquisition, restoration, and preservation, along with marketing and sales. He continues to work with conservation organizations and is dedicated to preserving Wyoming’s legendary landscapes.
