Wade Gibson

I am the Southwest team botanist and work on various projects in Arizona. I manage research projects in the Upper Verde River study area and at the Sierra Ancha Experimental Forest. I also manage invasive species removal efforts among wildfire scars in the Tonto National Forest. Assisting the team with large-scale reforestation projects is also a perk.

I received my Master of Forestry (M.F.) degree from Northern Arizona University and have worked for various organizations in the area since graduating including The Nature Conservancy and USFS.

I enjoy looking at plants, hiking, and traveling.
