In Roanoke, as a Regional Director for SAWS, Eric leads a team of field crews, wilderness rangers and specialists, and volunteers, and partners with the George Washington & Jefferson National Forests, the Monongahela National Forest, the Daniel Boone National Forest and the Ozark National Forest to help improve capacity for wilderness stewardship, increase relevancy of wilderness through education, and help the US Forest Service measure and preserve wilderness character.
Eric brings an extensive knowledge of wilderness history, wilderness law and policy, and public lands stewardship to the Virginia Wilderness Committee. He hopes to engage in land protection efforts, education and stewardship at VWC.
In his free time, Eric enjoys running, hiking, biking, canoeing and exploring new, wild places. He also loves cooking, homebrewing, and reading.
