Kyle Pritchard

I am passionate about natural resource conservation. Topics that interest me include trophic dynamics, plant/animal interactions, and how humans can manage wildlife habitat needs. I received my B.S. in ecology from the Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA in 2007 and have spent a considerable amount of time working as a biological science technician and environmental educator. My work history includes work with private, public and non-profit agencies including the National Park Service, US Forest Service, USGS, The Nature Conservancy, The Audubon Society and ODFW. When I'm not geeking out on nature science, I'm rockin' out on my accordion or snuggling with my cats. Also, I don't have a cool mustache anymore.
