Contact Maggie Biss

Born and raised in Boiling Springs, PA, Maggie Biss attended Saint Francis University in the mountains of Loretto, PA, and graduated with a B.S. in Biology with a concentration in Ecology and Environmental Biology. During college, Maggie was on the women’s swim team which took up most of her time besides her studies. However, she also conducted research on the effects AMD has on macroinvertebrate diversity, which has given her an even greater passion for clean waters and the diversity and abundance of organisms in them.

After graduating, Maggie spent her first summer out of college in Bartow, West Virginia working with Trout Unlimited as a Watershed Survey Technician. This consisted of surveying roads, habitat assessment in streams, AOP surveys, and electroshocking. Maggie fell in love with the mountain state after spending this summer in the national forest and being by the water all day.

During her free time, she loves fly fishing, swimming in the river, painting, drawing, gardening, and hiking.
