My name is Jay, I’m the Natural Resource Specialist at Albany Parks. I help manage the city’s urban forest, parks, and natural areas from an ecological perspective, which includes planting beneficial trees on city streets and in parks, performing ecological restoration, and fielding natural resource concerns from the public. I’m a proud graduate of Oregon State University’s Forestry Program. When I’m not at work I’m probably cooking a large meal, spending time with my beautiful family, snooping around in the woods, or playing loud music with my friends.
