Water Quality Programs Manager
Holden works to develop, manage and support VACD's non-agricultural water quality programs across Vermont including stormwater projects, tree plantings, and more. Holden has an MS in Natural Resources from the University of Vermont where he researched snow removal best management practices and water quality impacts from road salt. Previously, he worked at the Alliance for Aquatic Resource Monitoring (ALLARM) in Pennsylvania managing a regional volunteer monitoring program assessing surface waters for possible shale gas industry impacts. Holden aims to connect practitioners, communities, and resources towards the protection and enhancement of surface waters with VACD. Holden lives in Burlington and outside of work can usually be found on a bike, on a hike, or trying out an unfamiliar DIY project.
