The Sandy River Basin Watershed Council is pleased to welcome Jesse Holt to our team as an AmeriCorps Community Involvement Specialist. A Troutdale native, Jesse attended Reynolds High School and Mt. Hood Community College before receiving his Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science at Portland State University.
Jesse brings enthusiasm to his work, and is inspired to connect the watershed community to Beaver Creek and the lower Sandy River, where he spent much of his time growing up. He is interested in building a career in watershed restoration and held an internship with the Department of Environmental Quality before joining SRBWC. His goal here is to engage communities in the lower Sandy River watershed through the development of creative outreach strategies and inform local populations about ongoing river restoration activities.
