Dan Hintz, M.E.H.
With the Greenway Trust since: 2016
Dan is responsible for developing and implementing restoration projects throughout the Mountains to Sound Greenway National Heritage Area. These projects focus primarily on riparian and instream habitat restoration, following regional salmon recovery goals and initiatives. Dan also supervises the Greenway’s seasonal restoration crew, who implement the bulk of the Greenway’s ecological restoration work. Dan grew up outside of Chicago and attended the University of Wisconsin where he studied economics and environmental sciences before moving to Seattle to serve as an AmeriCorps member with EarthCorps. Since then, Dan has lived in Washington and worked restoration jobs for local government, non-profits, and a private contractor. Dan finished his Master of Environmental Horticulture degree at the University of Washington just after joining the Greenway Trust in the spring of 2016. In his spare time, Dan enjoys hiking, searching for old growth trees, playing guitar, and watching Cubs baseball.
