I first met Skip in his capacity as a wildlife/wetlands biologist for the Penobscot Indian Nation in the 1990s. I was immediately impressed by the depth of his knowledge of beaver ecology, his passion for the work, and his enthusiasm and willingness to help a sister tribe protect our roads from flooding while keeping our beaver populations and beaver flowages intact. Wetlands and, in particular, culturally significant wetland plants such as muskrat root and sweet grass, are a very important tribal resource. Skip’s skills have been invaluable in protecting these values. He’s the best at what he does! I highly recommend his services.
