RRA Member Spotlight
Outdoor enthusiast, budding scientist, and conservationist.
My name is Ryan Heuss and I am a Yarmouth resident. Exploring and recreating outdoors is an extremely important part of my life. Access to Maine parks and preserves has played a key role in my development as an outdoor enthusiast. I am an avid mountain biker, backpacker, fly fisherman, and rock climbing guide.
I am also a developing scientist, fascinated by the intricate ways in which humans and nature interact with one another. I am currently a senior at St. Lawrence University in upstate New York—soon to graduate with a degree in conservation biology. My concentration has been on aquatic ecosystems with research projects in Adirondack lakes and rivers. The Royal River restoration project in my hometown has been of great interest to me.
