Jeff Boland-Prom, MS: Founder
Jeff grew up on a farm on the Pacific Coast when he fell in love with the beauty of nature and quickly learned how fragile it could be. He grew up near Mt. St. Helens in Washington state and lived through the volcanic eruption.
Jeff Boland-Prom was trained by Mike Callahan and the Beaver Institute, the leading international authority on beaver management. Mike Callahan is the owner of Beaver Solutions, Inc. where he has installed over 2,000 beaver flow devices. Jeff is a nationally certified Beaver Wetland Professional after being trained on the installation and management of flow devices.
He brings together his training as a Certified Beaver Wetland Professional with his master’s degree in applied mathematics from DePaul. This knowledge gives Jeff the expertise to perform rigorous, systematic research-based analysis of beaver behavior and stream hydrology. He is able to use statistics to develop a deeper grasp of hydrology and stream flow dynamics.

During his time in the Corp, he took on leadership roles to complete large construction/land projects.
