Conservation Leaders For Tomorrow
Zachary E. Lowe is the Director of the Conservation Leaders Tomorrow Program, which is housed within the Max McGraw Wildlife Foundation in Dundee, Il. He has a diverse professional background working within the disciplines of restoration ecology, research/extension, and conservation education. He holds a B.S. in Wildlife Science, a second in Fisheries and Aquatic Science, and a Ph.D. in Restoration Ecology from Purdue University where he maintains an Adjunct Faculty position within the Department of Forestry and Natural Resources. A native to the Midwest, Zach grew up as an avid outdoorsman and is passionate about hunting. He engages in trapping and fishing as the time and the seasons allow. Zach enjoys the culinary rewards of hunting and gardening and finds the preparation of game and local foods to be a year-round connection to the family’s seasonal harvest. Fonder of dogs than most people, he has a pointing lab name Chester, “the nearly loyal”, who is a regular hunting companion for upland birds and waterfowl. Zach, his saintly wife, and 3 children live in west central Indiana, joined by 1 dogs, 2 turtles, and his wife’s cat. Zach is a member of several professional conservation organizations and is dedicated to working to ensure the future of conservation through wise consumption for the collective benefit of all things wild.
