Carson Watkins



I was raised on a family-operated ranch in southwest Idaho. I received my B.S. in Fisheries and Wildlife Biology and Management from the University of Wyoming in 2011. While pursuing my undergraduate degree I worked for six years as a seasonal fisheries technician with the Idaho Department of Fish and Game. My master's research is focused on evaluating the effects of habitat rehabilitation on fish assemblages and populations in the Kootenai River. In my spare time, I enjoy riding and training working cow horses, packing, and hunting big game in the Idaho mountains.
