A dedicated environmental scientist, Clemens focuses primarily on plants, soils, and streams. He currently works in Fort St. John, B.C., as an Environmental Specialist and his principle interests are stream ecological restoration, riparian-forest management, and the inclusion of Indigenous peoples and community stakeholders in policymaking.
His graduate work examined conceptual approaches to stream ecosystem restoration relating to the re-integration of natural processes. Feel free to explore an ongoing component of this work, the Stream Ecosystem Network (or S.E.N.)--it may be inaccessible at this time, but will be re-uploaded as soon as possible.
An avid mountaineer, skier, and rock climber, he spends most of his free time outdoors. He thoroughly enjoys climbing in Squamish, looking for steep and deep powder in the Duffey area, and documenting his latest bird observations. Other pastimes include fishing, hunting, fostering dogs, woodworking, sewing, and canoe camping.
