Student Bio

Matt completed his B.S. in Forestry and Wildlife in1998 from Virginia Tech and has since been involved with field work with various government, non-profit and private agencies as a field biologist in Idaho, Arizona, Utah, Hawaii and both Southern and Northern California. Matt concurrently works for the U.S. Forest Service as a seasonal botanist monitoring montane meadows as part of a 20-year project studying range ecology and is pursuing a M.S. degree in Environmental Sciences at CSU Chico.  His thesis involves meadow restoration and the linkages between groundwater and wetland obligate species at Clover Valley, located in the Feather River upper watershed. Matt’s interests are how Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) and Western Ecological Knowledge (WEK) can help restore or bring back into balance lands that have been degraded.
