Colton Finch


Colton grew up on ranches in ID, MO and AZ. He earned a B.S. in Fisheries Conservation and Management from University of Arizona in 2009. As an undergraduate he participated in restoration, renovation, and monitoring of streams, studies of Apache trout introgression, and experimental propagation of federally listed Cyprinids. He received a M.S. in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation from University of Florida in 2012 based on influencing vital rates of juvenile native fish through experimental manipulation of discharges in the Colorado River. He loves almost all outdoor activities, but states he isn't particularly good at any of them.
