He recently retired after a 42-year career in environmental science and research. He worked for the U.S. Forest Service from 1979 to 1986 on the Umpqua and Winema National Forests in Oregon. Steven then worked for the Environmental Protection Agency in various technical and management positions. At the EPA, Steven’s research focus was on climate adaptation, water, forests, and natural resource planning. Most recently, he led a collaborative study, coordinating with state agencies, other federal agencies, and non-governmental organizations involved in the arena of climate change science and policy, to consider how projected climate change impacts could be incorporated into the Clean Water Act and salmon recovery in the Pacific Northwest. The final 3-volume product of Steven’s research represented the culmination of a 4+ year effort that provides a basis for forest and salmon management in the Pacific Northwest. Steven earned a B.A. in Forest Management from Mississippi State University (1978), completed post-graduate studies at the Silvicultural Institute; Oregon State University - University of Washington (1984) and held a certificate in Strategic Planning; American Management Association (1990). He was an active member of the Society of American Foresters (SAF) and the American Society of Adaptation Professionals (ASAP). Sharp-witted, funny and thoughtful, Steven loved his family and his work and will be deeply missed.
