Originally from the midwestern state of Illinois, Tyler has been working with the SCA for the better part of 5 years. His initial introduction to the SCA was as a member on a Pacific Crest Trail team which traveled throughout California doing trail maintenance in some of the most beautiful spots in America. Since that life changing experience, Tyler has worked on 9 trail crews in nearly as many states. One lesson he learned from traveling and experiencing so many different parts of the US is that every region has its own character and quality. He hopes that the members of this program will find similar growth and enjoyment from working and learning in new places.
Tyler is an active SCA Conservation Work Skills Instructor and Leave No Trace Master Educator. He hopes to use his experience and enthusiasm to ensure a safe, productive, and fun year for the USFWS Trails Inventory Program.
