Welcome, Brendan Fordyce!

By Clackamas Soil & Water

Welcome, Brendan Fordyce!

The Clackamas Soil and Water Conservation District is pleased to announce our newest staff member in the WeedWise program, Brendan Fordyce! Brendan joins our team as a WeedWise Specialist and as the new Coordinator for the 4-County Cooperative Weed Management Area (CWMA) and Columbia Gorge CWMA
Brendan grew up in Clackamas County but left to receive his undergraduate degree in Ecology from Seattle Pacific University. Serving as an AmeriCorps volunteer inspired him to pursue a graduate degree in Natural Resource Management and a certificate in Forests and Climate Change at Oregon State University.
Before joining the WeedWise team, Brendan gained experience working as a natural resource technician for Metro. He also worked on a burn area trail crew with the U.S. Forest Service in response to the 2020 Labor Day Wildfires.

His new post on the WeedWise team is a complex but rewarding position. In this capacity, he not only helps to support invasive weed management in Clackamas County but also serves as a resource for invasive weed management and coordination throughout the region.

Brendan will be leading much of our work in the Sandy River watershed and has already helped with a regional conference in his first few weeks with the District!

In his free time, he enjoys hiking, biking, and paddling across the West with his wife. When he is not outside, Brendan enjoys new food carts and board game cafés.

Welcome Brendan!
