I’ve lived in Arden since 2007, and I have served on the Forest committee since 2009. I’m interested in protecting and restoring our woods and any practices that will make our footprint on the earth lighter. I enjoy studying forest restoration practices with the Penn State Extension. To support our goals of invasive plant management, I am certified by the Delaware Department of Agriculture as a pesticide applicator . I serve on the Urban and Community Forestry Council of the Delaware Forest Service. DDA.
Interests and areas of study include: Forestry, Arboriculture, forest restoration practices, and invasive plant management. I’m interested in how surface water travels through our streets, what happens to it as it flows toward the woods, and how to improve water quality in the streams that run through the woods. I was coordinator for the Sherwood Restoration project where we planned and implemented innovative hybrid dam structures to control stormwater from Buckingham Greene that damaged our woods. I’ve procured grants from DNREC to plan for stormwater management and multiple tree planting projects.
Finding ways to educate Arden about the environment, and to encourage folks to enjoy the treasures we have is a heartfelt goal.
