We are happy to welcome Jack Halsey as our new Confluence AmeriCorps member! Jack was a Fish Passage Intern with the council in the summer of 2013, surveying over 100 culverts in the watershed. In his new role as Outreach and Riparian Specialist, Jack will plan and implement riparian restoration projects, volunteer events, and environmental education for student groups from under-served communities.
Jack received his Environmental Analysis degree from Pitzer College. He was a seasonal Park Ranger at Tryon Creek State Natural Area for two years, working to improve recreation opportunities, educate visitors, and restore degraded habitat. He is especially passionate about environmental justice, and is looking forward to getting students from underserved communities outside and excited about nature! In his free time, Jack enjoys hiking, going to concerts, and making ceramic art.
