B.S. ENVS: Ecological Restoration from Humboldt State University (2015)
Robbie has spent the past three years working in and out of community service, first as a Landscape Projects Coordinator where he was responsible for the grounds revitalization projects at Holden Village, a wilderness retreat center in Washington. During the 2016 construction season he worked with and educated guests and volunteers about landscape scale restoration. Once the revitalization projects were completed Robbie switched over to working as a Head Cook and helped to feed upwards of 400 people a day in a community style kitchen. With his background in Botany and Restoration, Robbie is looking forward to opportunities to work with native plants, Salmon, and youth volunteers in the area.
Having lived in the Glacier Peak Wilderness in Central Washington Robbie enjoys snow-shoeing, igloo building, and exploring new and uninhabited places in his area.
