Bobby received his start in conservation by volunteering for four months on an ecological reserve in the Mayan Biosphere Reserve of Guatemala with the non-profit organization, Volunteer Petén. While receiving his degree in Anthropology from Metropolitan State College of Denver he interned with Fifth Sun Development Fund as an Environmental Anthropologist in the rural villages of Northern Mexico.
This is currently Bobby’s sixth season with the SCA. Bobby started with the SCA in 2009, Fire Effects Monitoring, in partnership with the Bureau of Indian Affairs in the Great Plains of North and South Dakota. He then went on to lead a Fire Effects Monitoring Team with Wayne National Forest, Ohio; then Trail Assessment and Condition Survey Teams in Mark Twain National Forest, Missouri, Finger Lakes National Forest, New York, and Green Mountain National Forest, Vermont. Most recently Bobby led the Veterans Fire Corps in Prescott National Forest, Arizona.
Bobby is a passionate outdoor enthusiast, conservationist, and is a certified Wildland Firefighter, Wilderness First Responder, and a Leave No Trace Master Educator. When he’s not leading fuels reduction projects throughout the forests of Northern Arizona you might find him riding his enduro across the desert and canyoneering with his better half (and fellow SCA Alum), Anna, throughout the amazing landscape of The Southwest.
Feel free to email or call Bobby with any questions or interest about the Veteran’s Fire Corps.
