The SWM Division is excited to welcome Gabe Chavez to the Water Quality team for the summer. Gabe will be spending a lot of time out in the field, assisting with water quality monitoring, program planning, and data management.
Gabe comes to us with a background in forest ecology, habitat restoration, and outdoor programming. He has done everything from conducting ecological monitoring of mountain lakes in Olympic National Park, to removing invasive plants from tidal mudflats, to conducting trail work for the City of Mercer Island. In his free time, you can find him out rock climbing, on backcountry trails, playing music, or settling in with a good book.
