Brad Weigel has a strong background in ecological restoration and has honed his skills with various agencies and private firms including the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR), The Nature Conservancy (TNC), United States Geological Survey (USGS), and Eco Logic LLC. Brad has been with NICHES for four years and currently stewards properties in Eastern Tippecanoe, Carroll, Clinton, Cass, Jasper, and Newton Counties. His favorite thing about NICHES, and the properties he manages, is the variety of landscapes and ecological communities found- from flat prairie to dense ravine forest. He considers Moyer Gould Woods and Fisher Oak Savanna as his favorites to explore. He enjoys doing all things outdoors including: backpacking, paddling, skiing, and fishing, as well as enjoys cooking and watching his alma mater, Indiana University, play basketball.
