Tyler is pursuing his passion for native trout conservation. After earning his B.A. in Biology at McKendree University in Southern Illinois, Tyler worked for the summer on the Ashley National Forest in Utah. Tyler is currently working on establishing a stream temperature and intermittency monitoring network in the Gila National Forest and hopes to expand his research to better aide in the determination and protection of critical habitat for Gila trout.
