Matt Tanis joined the Envirologic team in 2000 as a Project Biologist. His main duties included conducting due diligence work, ecological assessments, and wetland delineations. However, Matt’s role has since evolved, and he now primarily works as one of Envirologic’s Environmental Inspectors for pipeline projects.
Envirologic’s clients in the energy and utility sector face inherent obstacles associated with placing, replacing, and repairing utility pipelines. As an Environmental Inspector, Matt offers key support during these activities by collecting information needed to obtain applicable permits and monitoring contractors’ compliance with those permits as well as client-specific standard operating procedures. Matt also conducts various ecological services in support of these projects, including biological assessments such as threatened and endangered species surveys and wetland delineations.
With over 12 years of experience performing environmental inspections on pipeline projects and 22 years working as a Project Biologist, Matt is extremely knowledgeable and able to conduct assessments on various types of sites. Further, the breadth of his expertise gained from his unique background allows him to complete practically any environmental-related service a client may need.
Matt spends the majority of his time outside of work running to and from his two kids’ sports practices and games. When he does have genuine free time, he enjoys a variety of outdoors activities including bird watching, hiking, and fishing. Every spring, he and a group of friends travel to Ohio for The Biggest Week in American Birding festival, which encompasses several days of birding walks, workshops, and presentations.
