Tule O’Rourke – Restoration Technician
As part of Lomakatsi’s ecological forestry technical crew, Tule works on project layout & design, monitoring, and inventory.
Tule graduated from Southern Oregon University with a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science and Policy. During his senior year, he completed a semester-long internship with Lomakatsi’s Tribal Partnership Program, where he played a key role in engaging tribal communities and supporting the 2020 Fire and Climate Summit webinar on Aboriginal Fire.
An enrolled member of the Yurok Tribe in Northern California, living on the lower Klamath River was only the start of Tule’s love for the natural world. Now a part of Lomakatsi’s technical team, he is excited to contribute to sustainable land management, which he values.
