Scott completed his undergraduate education at the University of WisconsinMilwaukee, graduating with a BA in Geography and a certificate in Urban Planning. Afterwards, he pursued his interest in conservation work and outdoor recreation, leading him to the mountain west. Stints with the Utah Conservation Corps, Salt Lake City Open Spaces, and Cache County Weed Department, opened him up to the practices of local conservation and restoration programs. He hopes to build on those experiences at Utah State University by exploring planning as a tool for the sustainable management of lands and to promote environmental stewardship. Away from the classroom you’ll find him exploring the deserts and mountains.
