Ecological Planning Class of 2005
- James Eikenberry
Jim is a graduate of Warren Wilson College with a BA in Environmental Studies. He comes to the EP program with past work experience with the Peace Corps in Cameroon, AmeriCorps in North Carolina, the National Park Service in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and most recently as a Watershed Resource Coordinator for a Soil and Water Conservation District. Jim has experienced natural resource conservation work from many different angles, including conducting prescribed burns, sampling forest health research plots, and managing project funding. He has learned how conservation work is done both in the field and in the office, and this experience has provided him with an excellent "real world" context for his graduate studies. Jim's desire to become a more effective conservation professional and his passionate commitment to helping humans seek positive interactions with the natural world led him to the Ecological Planning program at UVM.
Jane (Moscowitch) Lazorchak
Jane never strayed far from Vermont after moving here eight years ago to attend the University of Vermont as an undergraduate in Environmental Studies. Jane has spent the last three years working for The Nature Conservancy (TNC) of Vermont as the Conservation Assistant. Her responsibilities at TNC included writing site conservation plans for priority sites identified through ecoregional planning, managing the GIS database, and working on large planning efforts such as the Vermont Biodiversity Project, the St. Lawrence/Champlain Valley Ecoregion, and reserve design for the Green Mountain National Forest. Her love for large planning initiatives and desire to learn more about the natural world in order to become an effective planner, led her to the Ecological Planning Program.
