Meet Asher Kingery

Asher Kingery | Project Specialist

Passionate, Devoted, Gracious

Asher, a Project Specialist, has been with the International Water Institute since June 2010.  His time is split between water quality monitoring, educational programming, and program development.  Asher grew up very familiar with the Red River Basin as both of his parents were involved in watershed planning and riparian restoration. He planted tens of thousands of trees and helped stabilize eroding river banks during high school while working for his family’s business in northeast North Dakota.  After attending Bemidji State University and majoring in Environmental Studies, Asher wanted to combine outdoor experiences with science education. Since joining the IWI, he helped introduce River Explorers to allow students a better understanding of rivers, and spearheaded the establishment of the North Dakota River Watch Program. Asher believes that all students and educators need opportunities to explore outside and he will continue to keep outdoor experiences a part of growing up in the Red River Basin.

Asher lives near Bemidji with his wife and two daughters.  When not working, he can be found gardening, spending time with his family, and watching college sports—and during deer season you won’t find him.
