Ian works as a Botanist/Restoration Ecologist in IAE’s Habitat Restoration Program. He received an M.S. in Botany from Oregon State University in 2008, where he focused on rare plant ecology and recovery. He has held field jobs emphasizing salmon and rockfish populations on the Oregon coast; small mammal diversity in the Blue Mountains; lichens, mushrooms, and bryophytes in the Cascades; and rare plant populations throughout Oregon. Away from IAE, he works with his family to run a diverse organic farm along the Luckiamute River in Kings Valley.
