Josh LeClerc

Natural Resource Scientist

My career has taken me to far corners of the world, but I’m most fascinated with how we interact with the natural environment here at home. My work includes critical areas analyses, mitigation planning, and environmental permitting; performing wetland assessments, monitoring, and delineations; and preparing biological assessments for threatened and endangered species. When not at work, I love birding, music, and spending time with my family.

Favorite Species:
Ivory-billed woodpecker (Campephilus principalis) – An amazing bird that was (very likely) driven to extinction in living memory. It’s a symbol of the cost of habitat destruction, and the search for survivors represents hope for better environmental stewardship.
Hidden Talent:
I sing baritone in a barbershop quartet.
