The Sage Environmental Research Team
The Principal Partners
Fluival Geomorphologist, Fisheries Biologist
Reid is a principal and co-founder of Sage Environmental Research. He has nearly a decade of experience monitoring streams and fish habitat in the pacific northwest. Much of his recent experience has been related to the Asotin Creek Intensively Monitored Watershed and other projects among tributaries to the lower Snake River in southeast Washington. Reid received a B.S. in Fishery Resources from the University of Idaho and a M.S. in Watershed Sciences with an emphasis in Fluvial Geomorphology from Utah State University. Reid’s primary focus has been developing and assessing the effectiveness of low-cost methods for stream restoration and monitoring. He also develops apps for field data collection and data managing systems for natural resource professionals. Reid was the sole proprietor of a small software development company named EcoTech Solutions for four years before transitioning to Sage, and is currently working at Cramer Fish Sciences. In his free time, Reid enjoys fishing, biking, skiing, rock climbing, SCUBA, and traveling in his camper van with his wife Meghan and dog Teddy.
Meghan Camp, PhD
Meghan is one of the co-founders of Sage Environmental Research. She is an expert in habitat and behavioral ecology and has extensive experience conducting field research in the western U.S. Meghan has led or assisted with a variety of projects measuring habitat for a range of species (e.g., pygmy rabbits, sage grouse, mule deer, and song birds) and assessing occupancy and animal movements using radio and GPS telemetry, camera traps, burrow surveys, plant-use, and fecal surveys. Meghan obtained her M.S. in Wildlife Sciences at University of Idaho where a major portion of her research was focused on assessing the influence of cattle grazing on habitat for pygmy rabbits. She obtained her PhD in Wildlife Ecology from Washington State University. During her PhD she was part of a multidisciplinary effort to understand the functional links between habitat features and use that allow us to predict habitat selection and infer habitat quality for sagebrush steppe species. The research approach used both theoretical and empirical work in the laboratory and field, and combined behavioral, nutritional, chemical, spatial, and physiological ecology to comprehensively evaluate the factors that influence habitat use by herbivores. More recently, Meghan has been studying American pikas’ capacity for genetic and behavioral adaptation to changing climatic conditions and testing new methods to estimate densities of deer and moose using camera traps. In her free time, Meghan enjoys mountain biking, fishing, rock climbing, and skiing.
