Kieran is excited to be serving his second Washington Conservation Corps term with KCD as the Riparian Habitat Stewardship Coordinator IP this year. Growing up in King County has made him rather fond of the Pacific Northwest and the outdoors in general. He is very passionate about restoration and promoting a sense of environmental stewardship within his community. He has a BS degree in Environmental Science from the University of Washington Seattle with a primary focus on restoration ecology and environmental horticulture. In addition to this, he also has experience working as a Plant Propagation Intern at his university’s native plant nursery. In his free time, Kieran enjoys gardening, baking, and playing boardgames with his friends.
