We are very excited to announce that our NEW AmeriCorps VISTA Volunteer, Jared Daniels, has officially joined our team! Jared will be living in Tierra Amarilla and working from the Bureau of Reclamation office in Chama. If you see him around town, please say hello!
Jared Daniels is the 2019-2020 AmeriCorps VISTA Volunteer for Chama Peak Land Alliance and the Bureau of Reclamation. He is from West Nyack, New York and has an Associates of Science in Environmental Science from Hudson Valley Community College and a Bachelors of Science in Geology from SUNY New Paltz. Jared has an interest in developing beneficial relationships between humans and their natural surroundings and views the goals of the CPLA and Bureau of Reclamation with the San Juan-Chama Watershed Partnership as a great fit. Having took part in a ten day geology field excursion of North New Mexico in 2015, he grew to love the natural beauty of the state. He jumped at the opportunity to be here for a year and perform good works for the community towards sustainability and responsible land stewardship.
