I've worked for parks non-profits and conservancies since 2005. My work has included fundraising; managing capital projects; organizing and running hundreds of programs, events, and volunteer workdays; and working as a seasonal horticulturist at an organically maintained park. As an independent consultant (Charlie McCabe Consulting LLC), I work with organizations across the country on a range of parks, open space, placemaking and non-profit projects and issues. I live in Greater Boston and in my spare time, I volunteer for several Boston-area parks and trails non-profit organizations.
