Zack also leads the League’s science-based advocacy on stormwater and aquatic invasive species and represents the League in stormwater and AIS working groups.
Zack has worked in the environmental non-profit field for the past 12 years, working on a variety of environmental issues, including nonpoint source pollution, forest management, endangered species conservation, and invasive species management.
