Since 1985, Bill has been on a journey focused on helping all people, no matter their circumstances, to collaborate to conserve our planet’s ecosystems and their communities. He learned to love trees as a student and practitioner of forestry; citizens making the most of their communities as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Haiti and a land use planner in Western Mass; and advance diverse partnerships that serve as the basis for a new grassroots conservation movement called Wildlands and Woodlands. Over the last three decades, Bill has grown personally and professionally as he took on different volunteer jobs with Eagle Eye: Instructor, Champion, Champion Trainer, Board Member, and Leadership Team Member.
As one of Highstead Foundation’s Senior Conservationists, Bill assists regional conservation partnerships and coordinates the Northeast Forest Network to permanently conserve 70% of New England in forest by 2060. Bill also serves on the board of directors of the Norcross Wildlife Foundation. Bill lives in Holyoke, MA, to be closer to Eagle Eye’s center of activities.
