Welcome BSWC Member Ben

Originally from Florida, Ben spent the last 12 years in Virginia. He first gained an appreciation for the outdoors through surfing and fishing along the Atlantic Coast. He graduated from the University of Virginia with a B.S. in Environmental Sciences and a minor in Biology. Ben spent the last few years interning in Australia, and working as an ecological field technician in the Shenandoah Valley and throughout the mid-Atlantic. Ben is excited to work with RVCD as the BSWC Member and gain hands-on experience with restoration projects that better local watersheds and their communities. In his free time, Ben can be found snowboarding, fly fishing, or enjoying a cup of coffee.
