After an extensive search and interview process, we are excited to announce that T. Parker Schuerman has joined our team as the new Director of Lands and Ecological Management. For the past 25 years, Parker has been working locally and regionally in restoration ecology, forestry, fire ecology, and land management. With an M.S. in Natural Resource Management, he has spent most of his professional career trying to understand, create, and monitor how natural and prescribed disturbances influence and improve habitats for all types of wildlife.
In his new role, Parker will help us develop and implement a long-term strategy to dovetail our sanctuaries into our educational mission and implement management practices which support biological diversity and ecological integrity at NH Audubon properties. Working with our education and communication staff, Parker will help update and enhance sanctuary maps, signs, and trailhead information. In addition to carpentry, Parker spends his free time hiking, birding, rearing butterflies, camping, raising blight resistant American Chestnut trees, and gardening.
