Cody joined FPC's staff in September 2014. Prior to joining that, he worked on FPC's restoration crew while completing his B.S. in Environmental Studies at Portland State University. Cody developed an interest in environmental systems while exploring the Sierra Nevada backcountry, the forests of the Cascade Range, and the coastlines of Baja California. This fascination with the natural world continues to grow each day he spends in Forest Park. If he’s not getting muddy in the park, he is probably out hiking in the Columbia River Gorge, snowshoeing around Mt. Hood, or climbing at Smith Rock.
