As an Easement Steward, Jack Minich is responsible for ensuring the conservation values of protected properties are being upheld according to the terms of the deed. To accomplish this, the stewards monitor properties in person and through the use of aerial imaging technology. Jack also brings skills from his past work experiences in invasive plant management to the team.
Before joining the Forest Society in May 2021, Jack worked in education, trails and environmental restoration positions from the North Woods of Minnesota to the Austrian Alps to the Mojave Desert in southern California. Most recently hailing from Minneapolis, MN, where he led a youth development trail crew, Jack moved with his family to southwest New Hampshire in 2019 to continue his Masters in Conservation Biology at Antioch University-New England and work in conservation in southern Vermont.
When not working, Jack can be found running the trails in the conserved Andorra Forest or on his mountain bike linking together Class VI roads across southwest New Hampshire.
