LITTLETON, Mass. — New England Forestry Foundation is pleased to welcome Eben Sypitkowski to its staff. As the new conservation easement coordinator, Eben will direct the annual monitoring of the Foundation’s 1,144,688 acres in conservation easements.
Originally from Bangor, Eben recently received his Master of Forestry from the University of Maine and has a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies from Bates College.
Previously, he has worked in a variety of related positions including teaching assistant, forestry technician, field crew leader, and forest manager throughout the state of Maine. Eben has also worked at roasting coffee, banging nails, raising livestock, trail building, and researching marine worms.
As is true of most foresters, Eben came to the profession to work outdoors. “A bad day in the woods is always better than a good day in the office,” he says.
“New England Forestry Foundation serves as the nexus between conservation and dirty-boots forestry. From this platform, I’d like to help shape the conversation between landowners, land managers, and the public, and do what I can to share my love for sustainably-managed, natural places,” comments Eben.
