Marine and Nearshore Project Technician
Jonathan Hallenbeck serves as the Marine and Nearshore Project Technician for the Northwest Straits Commission. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Environmental Conservation and has a wealth of skills and enthusiasm. Originally from Skagit Valley, he is a part of the Veterans Conservation Corps program. Before joining us in 2021, he conducted a pioneer research study involving Six-rayed Sea-Stars Leptasterias hexactis and their “site fidelity” or habitat loyalty, focusing on human influenced versus non-influenced environments. He is very glad to be part of the team and is looking forward to working on projects this summer.
