Excerpt from Chris Carrel’s Hylebos Blog (CC was Executive Director)

Eric Stavney served for a little over 6 years and during that time he’s been Vice-President and served two stints as President. Eric stepped up to leadership roles in the board despite this not being his first choice. He did it because the borrd needed someone to fill the roles at the time.

Eric’s first love is on-the-ground restoration work. He has been involved in, I believe just about every restoration project we’ve done, as a volunteer. A devoted father of two really wonderful children, Carl & Linnea, Eric often brings his kids to the events. Both father and children have racked up huge volunteer hours and garnered just about every volunteer reward we offer.

Eric, thank you for years of service to the Hylebos, and your friendship, as well as putting up with me all those times you were President!

All three served on the board during a time of significant growth and substantial achievements in our conservation goals. While board members don’t always get a lot of recognition, and much of their work is done behind the scenes, we wouldn’t be the organization we are today, and we wouldn’t have the acres preserved and restored that we do, without Jim, Eric & Judy. Thank you for being on the board!
