Conservation Executive Director Roger Kean shaking new Park Ranger Brad Taylor's hand.

We would like introduce our newest Park Ranger, Bradley Taylor. Bradley started in December and we were able to officially swear him in at our virtual Conservation Board meeting on January 13, 2021. He joins our team with 15 years previous experience with Clinton County Conservation and is excited to put his experience to further use helping make Scott County Park a great place for people to come and recreate.

Congratulations and welcome aboard Brad!
