Elijah Riggen

Resource Recovery Technician

Elijah is a graduate of Hope College and the University of West Alabama with a Bachelor’s in Geology and M.S. in Conservation Biology. Along with this, he has a background in environmental science and an avid interest in the conservation field with many experiences leading up to the Montcalm Conservation District. Growing up around farming and the outdoors, Elijah learned hard work and thoughtfulness regarding the surrounding landscape and what it means to conserve our land. He enjoys spending time outdoors camping, fishing, learning to hunt, taking pictures, canoeing, and biking. Elijah is excited to continue to learn about conservation and help Montcalm County communities become even better through resource recovery and conservation programs.
