Eugene Wier
Restoration Project Manager

Eugene brings more than a decade of fish and wildlife research and habitat restoration experience to The Freshwater Trust. He has worked with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Forest Service, University of California-Davis, Rogue Valley Council of Governments, BLM and the U.S. Geological Survey. Eugene holds a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies from Southern Oregon University. As a Project Manager out of The Freshwater Trust’s Ashland, Oregon office, Eugene oversees the successful implementation and stewardship of a variety of restoration projects throughout southern Oregon. When Eugene’s not working along a stream or river, he is likely to be found waist deep in one, casting flies, or tramping through the bush in search of the wild things and wild places that inspire and inform his work.

Eugene’s Why: If you were offered the chance to make a living restoring streams and rivers, wouldn’t you?
