Devon’s love of the outdoors began in his hometown of Santa Barbara, where as a kid he enjoyed skateboarding, mountain biking, and surfing. Devon began his career at the City of Santa Barbara as a Nature Camp counselor. During this time he developed a passion for environmental education and advocacy. He continued this career path while studying Environmental Management and Protection at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. After graduating from Cal Poly, Devon accepted a position as an AmeriCorps member with the Watershed Stewards Program. Placed at Grassroots Ecology, Devon was able to pursue his passion of environmental education and stewardship while working with volunteers to restore habitat in Silicon Valley. Today, Devon continues his work at Grassroots Ecology as a restoration specialist, restoring habitats at two local nature preserves. In his free time he enjoys exploring the Santa Cruz mountains and making music.
