Zachary has a passion for learning about the environment and sharing that knowledge with others. He grew up in Oklahoma and attended college in Washington. Zach first became interested in the natural world when hiking with his mom and fishing with his dad while growing up. He went to The Evergreen State College where he studied plant ecology and Unity College where he studied environmental geographic information science. He worked on a environmental restoration crew for two years where he got firsthand experience observing and interacting with the natural world. In the future, he hopes to use technology to better understand nature and continue to share that information with all who are interested.
