Torch Passed To New Project Manager
Nicholas Vos-Wein has been named to the position of Hackensack Riverkeeper Project Manager, replacing Jared Eudell.
Nick is an old friend of Hackensack Riverkeeper having worked as the AmeriCorps Watershed Ambassador for WMA5 in 2003-2004. His experience in AmeriCorps has prepared him for the challenges that come along with managing the many environmental education and recreation initiatives that Jared incorporated into Hackensack Riverkeeper’s offerings. Nick’s major responsibilities include managing the Paddling Center, and coordinating the Urban Fishing program and the water quality educational monitoring program.
Nick has a strong background in environmental science and education. After completing his undergraduate work at Allegheny College in Pennsylvania, he joined the Hackensack Riverkeeper team and AmeriCorps, and it was through these experiences that he first learned about the Waterkeeper movement.
“Leaving AmeriCorps in search of a new job was very difficult. In the short time that I worked with Hackensack Riverkeeper, I grew very fond of the organization and their selfless devotion to the environment,” Nick said.
After finishing his AmeriCorps service, Nick spent six weeks in Costa Rica studying tropical ecology and volunteering at a reforestation project where he worked with local schoolchildren. He spent the past year working as a teacher-naturalist intern for the Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association (SBMWA) where he led dozens of programs for students and families. During his term at SBMWA, he designed several new programs and completed a survey of the wildflowers of central New Jersey.
