Carlin Girard, Water Resource Specialist

Carlin joined the Teton Conservation District team in 2014, but has lived and worked in WY since 2006. He is motivated in his position as the Water Resource Specialist because he wants to share his appreciation for the intact ecology of the Snake River Watershed. Coming from a diverse background in natural resource management and research, his experience working for the Wyoming Game and Fish Department in Jackson led him to a Master’s degree in Aquatic Resource Management at the University of Wyoming. Graduate school helped develop his technical skills such as database management, statistics, and GIS mapping and analysis. His aquatic work experience has focused on native fisheries, aquatic and riparian habitat, and water quality. Also, he has worked with ungulates, waterfowl, passerines, raptors and a wide range of vegetation communities.
