Andrew Stubblefield

Growing up in the heart of the San Joaquin Valley, Andre‚ was surrounded by an agriculturally fueled community and the many water issues that ensue. This, in combination with frequent family trips to the Sierra Nevada gem that is Yosemite National Park, ultimately shaped his passion for conservation and restoration work. After receiving his B.S. in Wildlife, Fish, and Conservation Biology from UC Davis in 2014, he went on to conduct amphibian surveys and aquatic restoration for Yosemite National Park where he would return for three seasons. Andre also went on to work with other aquatic restoration and water resources oriented programs that include the AmeriCorps Watershed Stewards Program, Regional Water Quality Control Board, and conducting coastal climate change monitoring with the U.S. Geological Survey. Andre would return to academia to pursue the M.S. in Natural Resources with a Watershed Management emphasis. Andre's research interests lie in landscape scale watershed management and restoration, aquatic ecology, and forest ecology. Working with Dr. Andrew Stubblefield, Andre's research looks at quantifying summer water budget use by fir and oak trees within overtopped and released forest stands.
