Shawn is currently the field and research manager for Trout Unlimited’s Pennsylvania Coldwater Habitat Restoration Program in Lock Haven, Pennsylvania and also works in conjunction with TU’s Science Program. He has earned both his master’s degree and Ph.D. in Ecology from Penn State University, where he developed a passion for brook trout and the streams where they live. With Trout Unlimited, his research has focused on the conservation issues of native brook trout, ranging from restoration from abandoned mine drainage pollution and aquatic organism passage issues to broad-scale conservation planning. The joint meeting is free and open to the public.
