A lifelong resident of northern New England, Aaron is excited to be back in Vermont and is guided by the pursuit of finding a healthy balance between human activities and the natural world, having studied biogeochemistry and small-scale renewable energy at NVU Lyndon. He spent 3 summers interning for the Appalachian Mountain Club’s Research Department, studying air quality and alpine plants on Mount Washington. From there he shifted to their Backcountry Campsite Program with a curiosity for composting human waste, desire to work on trail and campsite improvements, and to assume a role as steward of the White Mountains. Since Aaron’s first experience with the Green Mountain Club was an LNT Master Educator course, it seems no coincidence that he has returned as the VHCB AmeriCorps Outreach and Field Coordinator. He looks forward to coordinating group use on the Long Trail, promoting low impact camping techniques for everyone’s mutual enjoyment of the backcountry, and leading volunteer groups for service learning trips on the Long Trail. Otherwise, he can be found in the woods riding his bike or on a pair of skis.
