Hartwell Carson to contribute an essay

The French Broad Riverkeeper, Hartwell Carson is going to write an essay about the history and current state of the French Broad River. I am really excited that Hartwell has decided to contribute his voice to a project that could not have happened without his assistance.

Hartwell is a native of Macon, GA. He completed his undergraduate work at the University of Georgia studying Recreation and Resource Management. While a student there, he worked with the Outdoor Recreation Center as an environmental educator and guide.  After working for the Forest Service in Colorado, Hartwell earned his Masters of Science from the University of Montana, where he conducted extensive work examining social and ecological impacts on the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument. Hartwell has been the French Broad Riverkeeper for the past 7 years.  He is one of 180+ Waterkeepers who are networked through the Waterkeeper Alliance. As the French Broad Riverkeeper Hartwell works to monitor pollution and protect the water quality of the French Broad River, as well as educate the public about stewardship of the rivers in the watershed.  Hartwell currently works for the Western North Carolina Alliance and is also the President on the Board of Directors for the Tennessee Riverkeeper.
