Andrew Petitdemange joined the Partnership Wild and Scenic Rivers staff at the end of September as the new Natural Resource Specialist. With about a decade of National Parks Service experience, Andrew brings with him a passion for ecological stewardship as well as management expertise. He will be working with NPS Region 1 and will join Liz Lacy in supporting the Eightmile, Upper and Lower Farmington, and Westfield designated rivers.
Andrew’s dedication to the NPS is a testament to his belief that our public lands are for everyone; he holds a particular interest in environmental justice. He is looking forward to working with and learning from the PWSRs in community-level planning. He enjoys spending time in the outdoors with his family, particularly hiking along rivers or streams. With two young children, Andrew has a deep appreciation for the tranquility and peace brought by the sound of a flowing river.
Welcome to Andrew!
