Jim Fried, Director

Jim Fried grew up in St. Louis, Missouri where his love for the outdoors was born. The woods and beautiful places instilled a desire for nature and a yearning for more. Jim graduated with a Double major in Geography and Environment and Natural Resources. He has been with the program since the summer of 2012 where he started out as a crew member. His desire for hard work and living in the outdoors was shaped by that amazing first season with the Wyoming Conservation Corps. Since then he has elevated to the position of Crew Leader, and currently the Field Supervisor. -- EMAIL:


Tyler Carroll, Field Supervisor

Tyler Carroll, originally from Parker CO, came to Laramie in 2013 to attend the University of Wyoming. Working on majors in Geography and Environment and Natural Resources, as well as minors in Sustainability and Outdoor Leadership. Tyler gained a passion for the outdoors through Boy Scouts, where he earned the rank of Eagle and was introduced to conservation. He worked for the WCC in 2016 as a crew member then as a crew leader in 2017 which further established his passion for conservation work. Last year Tyler worked at the Outdoor Program as a trip leader which also reestablished his desire to lead in an outdoor setting. The majority of his free time is spent outdoors mountain biking, skiing, hiking, rafting, fly-fishing, and really anything else you can do outside. “Conservation is a cause that has no end. There is no point at which we will say our work is finished” –Rachel Carson
