Crystal Sinclair


My name is Crystal Sinclair. I am an adjunct instructor for Columbia College’s, Forestry and Natural Resources department. I teach the Natural Resources Conservation, Water Infrastructure in California, Soil Resources, and Natural Resources Law and Policy.

I earned an interdisciplinary degree in Wildlife Biology and Ecology, and have over a decade of experience in natural resource management. I have monitored Riparian woodrats and Brush rabbits with Endangered Species Recovery Program; CSU Stanislaus, evaluated restored Riparian habitats for River Partners, and rehabilitated wildlife for Stanislaus Wildlife Care Center.

When not teaching courses for Columbia College, I work as an Environmental Scientist with California Department of Fish and Wildlife. For the last 12 years I oversaw the Age Program for Chinook salmon on the lower San Joaquin River’s Tributaries. Currently I work in Habitat Conservation in the California Endangered Species unit out of Central Region, Region 4.

My off time is filled with hiking, swimming, and spending quality time with family and friends. I also love to read and travel.

The best way to contact me is by sending a message via Canvas Inbox. I am checking this Inbox twice weekly on Mondays (5pm - 8pm) and Wednesday (5pm - 8 pm) and will send all responses during those set hours.
