Tyler Erb graduated in May with a degree in ERM and minors in Environmental Engineering and Watersheds and Water Resources. Tyler brings with him experience at riparian buffer restoration and manure management planning and a passionate interest in community engagement to restore the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Tyler grew up near Harrisburg on the west shore of the Susquehanna, fishing and boating on the river. Tyler is interning in our Lower Susquehanna Office, where he will help run the Greening the Lower Susquehanna native nursery, provide outreach and technical assistance to landowners to implement and maintain restoration projects, and assist in implementing the AEC’s many Lower Susquehanna initiatives.

Rob is a rising junior in the ERM program.  A resident of Potomac, Maryland, Rob brings considerable technical experience and skills relating to business sustainability, environmental policy, marketing and communications. He spent previous summers working for the National Aquarium in Baltimore, the US Fish and Wildlife Service, and Greeneye, an environmental and social investment consulting firm based in Jerusalem, Israel. Rob will be involved in many priority projects at the AEC, including working with Chiques Creek partners on a comprehensive watershed plan, planning and attending education and outreach events across the region, helping community members in the Lost Creek watershed in Juniata County create a vision for their watershed, and developing and delivering AEC communication materials to help tell our story.

Welcome, Tyler and Rob!
