Brad Weigel’s passion for the outdoors began on his grandfather’s farm in rural southeastern Indiana. With about a hundred acres to explore, the woods and creeks became his stomping grounds for hunting, fishing, and just being immersed in nature. With a degree in environmental science from Indiana University, Brad has over fifteen years of experience working at conservation-based organizations in land and natural resource management. His expertise includes native species management, invasive species control, ecological restoration, forest management, and prescribed fire management. Currently working as a lands manager for a local land trust in coastal Maine, Brad dreams of finding a nice patch of woods, living off-grid, and catching the next big fish!
