Eric Sprague oversees the implementation of our large landscape forest restoration efforts across North America. In this capacity, Sprague develops and tests innovative restoration techniques, implements restoration plans and strategies in American Forests’ priority landscapes, and supports policy initiatives to scale-up action. Throughout this work, Sprague is integrating climate science to ensure America’s forests adapt to a changing climate. Prior to joining American Forests, Sprague directed the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay’s efforts to restore forest ecosystems, including accelerating the planting of trees along streams and using market-based forest conservation strategies.
