LEO Network

Northwest Indian College (NWIC)


The Local Environmental Observer (LEO) network is a network of local observers and topic experts who share on-the-ground knowledge about unusual animal, environmental and weather events. The network uses valuable traditional and local knowledge to help observe and report changes in the local environment. President of Northwest Indian College, Dr. Justin Guillory, a descendant of the Nez Perce tribe, is encouraged by this new partnership, noting: “The expansion of the LEO program into Tribal Colleges and Universities is a recognition of the important roles TCUs serve throughout North America. We are humbled and honored to be identified as the first college to serve in this capacity and look forward to contributing to this important initiative.”
