Having joined Trout Unlimited’s New England Culvert Project as an intern in 2011, Erin now leads habitat restoration and connectivity work in Vermont, western Massachusetts, and western New Hampshire. She focuses on assessing the links between aquatic organism passage and flood vulnerability of bridges and culverts, then working with towns and other agencies to replace the worst structures. She has also started to increase the number of in-stream habitat restoration projects on public and private lands, as well as establish a new research and monitoring program at many of these sites.
Erin completed her doctoral degree at Antioch University New England during which she studied the effects of Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee flooding on stream communities and the population dynamics of brook trout in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area.
