Bryce Hutchins, GrizzlyCorps Rural Climate Fellow
A native of Humboldt County, Bryce Hutchins graduated from the University of California, Berkeley (2020) with a dual degree in Ecosystem Management and Forestry and Conservation Resource Studies. His academic interests have focused on community-led resource development in Latin America. In his final year as an undergraduate, he conducted his honors thesis research on emerging carbon markets within forest communities of southern Chile. In California, Bryce has worked on multiple Berkeley-based research projects around California and with the Jackson Demonstration State Forest in Fort Bragg. He hopes to continue pursuing his interests in forest-based climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies and learning about the role of community participation in forest management in California. Outside of his professional interests, Bryce loves to photograph while backpacking through natural areas in South America and elsewhere. He also enjoys finding time to work in the garden and care for his abundant houseplants. He is excited to engage with the Mendocino community during his service year with the MCRCD as a GrizzlyCorps Rural Climate Fellow for 2020-2021.
