The Small Forest Landowner Office would like to introduce Rick Kuykendall, the Family Forest Fish Passage Program Specialist. Rick graduated from Humboldt State University with a degree in Forest Management. He then worked for the United States Forest Service in California for 10 years before coming to the Department of Natural Resources (DNR). He worked for DNR for six years in State lands as a generalist – back in the good olds days when you got to do a little bit of everything. He has also been an active part of the DNR Fire program as Task Force Leader and Fireline Blaster. Rick has been with the Small Forest Landowner Office for 13 years. He enjoys educating folks about forestry in general, and helping them achieve their management objectives. Rick and his wife are small forest landowners themselves, as they own 40 acres of forestland that they actively manage.
