Project Leader: Tyler Kimble Project Dates: April 19 - September 12 Members Arrive June 2
Tyler grew up in the heart of cheesehead country, Green Bay, Wisconsin. Moving back and forth from hobbies ranging from graphic design to card games to film, he finally settled on a Anthropology degree and an Environmental Studies minor from the University of Wisconsin. Running with the environmental side of his coursework, he put it into practice with his first SCA corps member position as part of the Mt. Rainier Recovery Corps in Washington. Here he shoveled snow trails, built hiking trails, pulled weeds, revegetated riparian areas, and generally had a grand old time. He followed this up with a short stint as part of the Wisconsin Dept. of Natural Resources's State Parks Trails Crew, also building new trail to repair flood damage in Southwestern Wisconsin. Two more SCA corps positions followed, one in Florida where he built two fantastic bridges, and one in Idaho, where he did more trail work in addition to visitor use surveys and natural resource projects. He's currently excited to be leading a crew in the rugged and beautiful Umatilla National Forest of Northeastern Oregon and Washington!
