Bio: Mike Till here, forester extraordinaire. I work for the Colorado State Forest Service locally out of our Woodland Park Field Office and have been for the past 11 years. I have been working in the natural resource field specifically in the southwest, for the past 21 years. I help local governments and private homeowners with technical forestry assistance. I like to say, “Solving forestry issues from seed to stud”. In my current role, I administer and plan fuel mitigation projects in partnership with Colorado Springs Utilities, on forested areas around reservoir properties to protect the watershed from catastrophic wildfire and other disturbances. I spend most of my non-work hours hanging with my family and riding my bike when I can squeeze in a ride.
