F. Teal Waterstrat



term expires 2019

Teal grew up bouncing back and forth between a far-away land called Mississippi,  where there were no snow-capped mountains and cool emerald seas (but lots of cool vertebrates and people), and the PNW.  He permanently landed in the Pacific Northwest to pursue a degree in Biology from the University of Washington and later a Masters of Environmental Studies from The Evergreen State College.  For the past 20 plus years he has enjoyed working in numerous natural resource management agencies, museums, non-profits, and also washing dishes and riding his bicycle for money.  Currently he holds s position with the USFWS in Lacey, Washington and shares his days gallivanting around the South Puget Sound with his offspring, Hudson and Leif, and his lovely wife, Sheila.  Teal’s first involvement with SNVB was the 2007 annual meeting in Victoria.  As Treasurer he hopes to help the ongoing growth and support of the  SNVB membership and mission.
