Lucas WedgeLucas (600x600) developed a love for the outdoors while hiking and camping with his local Boy Scout troop, where he achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. While studying Environmental Science and Natural Resources at the University of Nevada, Reno, he began to focus more heavily on botany and the rangeland ecosystem throughout Nevada.
Lucas started working for GBI in the summer of 2016 as a field technician for the NDOW VHA program and enjoyed it so much he returned the following year to the same position after earning his bachelor’s degree. After serving two consecutive seasons, Lucas became the Assistant Coordinator for the NDOW program in early 2018. He currently assists Jessica Saenz and uses his botany and GIS skills to support the program. In his free time, Lucas enjoys cooking, collecting plants from around Nevada, and snowboarding.
