Daniel Newberry has been the Executive Director of the Johnson Creek Watershed Council for the past 3+ years. He started his fish restoration work as a hydrologist with the Mt. Hood National Forest in 1993. He has also worked as a hydrologist for the Hoopa Valley Tribe. His work with Oregon watershed councils began as Executive Director for the Applegate River Watershed Council. He subsequently managed his own consulting practice, working with 10 Oregon non-profits in stream restoration, strategic planning, and fundraising. Prior to his natural resources work, he was a software engineer for nine years. He holds a B.A. in Physics from Middlebury College and a Masters of Forest Science from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies.
The purpose of the speaker series is to provide a local networking opportunity for the stream restoration community outside of River Restoration NW’s annual symposium and to hear from an expert on a restoration-related topic, in an informal setting, with beer! Speakers will present for 20 to 30 minutes with time for questions and discussion. Food and drinks are available for purchase. You’ll be in charge of your own food and beverages but, rest assured that the storytelling and conversation will be excellent.
