"Key McMurry and I were previously both Fish and Wildlife Biologists for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. She was an Area Habitat Biologist in a region office and I was at headquarters in the Forest Habitats section. Key was a great person to work with and she has an excellent set of skills that all fit together perfectly: she knows her stream habitat types and what fish live in them, she is familiar with restoration and engineering techniques, and also various culvert specifications, rip-rap situations, etc; and she knows all of the people in her community with the skills to make things happen and can bring them together and get a project going faster than anyone I've ever encountered. She is smart, friendly, creative, and a Force of Nature.
Beyond the realm of fish, Key also has experience evaluating Marbled Murrelet habitat, and is versed in the bird
species that occur in this region.
I appreciate Key for her attention to detail and her commitment to taking care of our natural resources and local communities!"
