Stewardship & Education Program Director
Adam has diversified experiences in the environmental field, with years of experience in natural resource management, project and program coordinating, community and youth engagement and education, and even a stint as a Green Team leader and logistics manager at an all-natural pet food manufacturer. After earning a B.S. in Environmental Science, Policy and Management at the University of Minnesota, Adam traveled abroad and around the U.S. gaining valuable insight into a natural resource based work. In 2012, he happily found a place back home in the Twin Cities when he took a job at FMR.
After six years of coordinating the majority of our stewardship activities with the public and with private groups, Adam is now the director of FMR's educational and volunteer programming.
Adam's hobbies and interests are centered around being outside as much as possible - hiking, biking, camping, canoeing, gardening, identifying plants for fun, foraging, hunting, and team sports. Additionally, he loves making music, food, and brewing delicious beers. Adam's accomplishments include being the "wrangler of the week" at a dude ranch in Wyoming when he was 6 years old, and was the "Star Performer" at YMCA Camp St. Croix in 2008 for his dedication as Director of the Kind Leadership Camp. He aims to add more to that list.
