Josh grew up in Kirkland, Washington and has always been interested in wildlife conservation. It all started back in 4th grade when his class raised salmon eggs to fry and released them back into the local stream. Josh earned his BS in Fisheries Conservation and Management at the University of Arizona. Since graduating from the U of A, Josh has been involved with salmon habitat restoration and conservation with Mid-Sound Fisheries and Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission, apache trout conservation and creel surveys with the Arizona Game and Fish, and buffle grass removal with Saguaro National Park. He currently is an organic chemist with Pima County Wastewater in Tucson, AZ. Josh is looking forward to creating awareness and
raising funds for GCF in Tucson.
