Being part of a passionate team that is dedicated to enhancing the beautiful watersheds of our area. I love that I get to work outside in the beautiful landscapes that inspire our work and motivate our collaborators.

Think global, act local. At Balance, we are able to restore past disturbances in our local watersheds to help combat regional issues while motivating others to be the change they want to see.
