Shiloh has worked with the Cascade Forest Conservancy since 2011 leading conservation and restoration projects in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. He runs the citizen science program and the aquatic and forest restoration efforts of the organization.

Shiloh received his Master’s in Geography from Portland State University with a focus on habitat mapping and landscape ecology. He was a member of the Dynamic Ecosystems and Landscapes Lab in the Environmental Science Department. During this time, he was part of the Vegetation-Fire-Owl Project investigating future forest cover patterns and potential fire severity in the Wenatchee and Deschutes National Forests. His 2015 paper in Landscape Ecology, titled Modeling Predator Habitat to Enhance Reintroduction Planning, explored new variations in habitat mapping and outlined fisher reintroduction potential in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. He recently published the Wildlife and Climate Resilience Guidebook: A Conservation Plan for the Southern Washington Cascades, which outlines strategies and recommendations for building resilience for species and habitats of the region. He is currently working on research projects on huckleberry restoration, beaver habitat, and wildlife camera surveys. Shiloh spends his free time writing music, playing tennis, exploring the Gifford Pinchot, enjoying time with his family, and running a small non-profit called Bridging Our Divide.
