As an avid hiker and biker, I love trails and linear parks. For the past 20 years, I've worked and volunteered to repay the benefits I have enjoyed in California, Texas, New England and New York. I've organized hundreds of volunteer workdays and I enjoy working with groups to figure out how to adopt, improve and maintain trails and the parks and natural landscapes that surround them. I now volunteer for several Boston-area parks organizations.
