Owen Baughman has been a Precision Restoration Scientist with The Nature Conservancy in Burns Oregon, USA, since 2018. Over the last 15 years, he has worked in multiple capacities to understand, test, and/or demonstrate new and innovative approaches to native plant restoration in North America’s sagebrush steppe. Born in eastern Nevada, the sagebrush sea is his favorite sea. He earned an MS in Plant Ecology in 2014 from the University of Nevada Reno, and a BS in Ecology and Conservation Biology in 2010 from the University of Idaho.

His favorite hobbies include multi-day backcountry trips (by foot or boat) with his wife and family, dogs and/or friends.
