B.S. in Fish, Wildlife & Conservation Biology, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO
During and after college, Matt participated in a number of scientific studies, working for USGS, USFS, CPW and New Mexico State University. During his time as a biologist, Matt had the privilege of working with Wyoming toads (the United States' most endangered amphibian), greater sage grouse, and lesser prairie chickens. After spending time as a wildlife biologist, Matt decided to pursue a career in education, and spent the past three years in Aspen, CO, leading hiking/snowshoe tours, and teaching environmental education to grades K-4 in Aspen Elementary School. In his free time, Matt likes to hike, fish, camp, set up trail cameras, and most of all, spend time in his public lands.
