Drew Reed - Executive Director
Drew began serving as the organization’s Executive Director in May 2008. As a native Arkansan he developed a great appreciation and respect for the outdoors very early in life. It was this interest in the natural world that led him to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Wildlife Ecology and Management from Arkansas State University. Drew continued on to earn a Master’s of Science in Biology with an emphasis on the Roosting Ecology of the Southeastern Bat. In addition to numerous bat research projects, he has been involved in a variety of conservation-oriented projects, including the occurrence of the endangered pondberry plant in Arkansas, various amphibian and avian conservation projects, wood-decay fungi affects on cavity nesters, grizzly bear population monitoring, and cougar ecology in the Jackson area.
