Rickie is executive director of the Ellerbe Creek Watershed Association (ECWA), a land trust and watershed association based in Durham, NC. For the past 20 years, Rickie has worked to collaborate with citizens, non-profits and governmental agencies, to implement and manage ecological research and restoration projects in Chicago, DC, and the Southeast United States. Prior to his work at ECWA, Rickie led NatureServe’s Southeast conservation science/ecology team in using research to better understand and protect rare ecosystems across the region. When not waxing poetic to innocent bystanders about the wonders of plants, Rickie enjoys gardening, walking his dog Juno through 17-Acre Wood, and imagining what it would be like to win ECWA’s next Beaver Queen Pageant (https://beaverqueen.swell.gives/).
