Ryan Wallin joined the OWLT team in early 2016. Ryan graduated from UW-Stevens Point with a degree in Wildlife Ecology and Management. Later, he earned a graduate degree with honors in Environmental Policy and Management, with a fish and wildlife management emphasis.
As a native to southeastern Wisconsin, Ryan returned to the state after spending several years in the state of Washington. There, he worked for the Washington State DNR as a Fish and Wildlife Biologist. He oversaw timber harvest activities on public lands and required him to get involved with scientific research design, endangered species processes, habitat conservation and land management plans, habitat inventory and analysis, geographic information systems, forest health, silviculture, and landscape level management regimes. Ryan is excited to be back in the great state of Wisconsin and working to protect our precious landscape.
