Tait was born and raised in the Seven Castles area of the Fryingpan River Valley. His first watershed exploration was as an adventurous toddler in Seven Castles Creek. The deep natural connections he established in the Roaring Fork Valley as a child drew him to a B.S. in Natural History and Ecology from Prescott College and an Master of Science Degree in International Environmental Studies from the Norwegian University of Life Sciences. The opportunity to become personally invested in the stewardship of the Roaring Fork Watershed by working with RFC is an honor and Tait is excited to see where it takes him.
