As a Conservation Easement Steward, John is responsible for ensuring the conservation values of protected properties are being upheld according to the terms of the deed. To accomplish this, stewards monitor properties in person and through the use of aerial imaging technology.
Before joining the Forest Society, John served in AmeriCorps at conservation non-profits across New England. He has managed volunteer trail projects on the Long Trail in Vermont and water quality projects on the Squam Lakes in New Hampshire. John was inspired to work in conservation during his 2017 hike of the Appalachian Trail, which he completed after leaving a job in the corporate world. When not at work, John can be found skiing and running in the White Mountains with his partner Sophie.
