Board Member (June 2017 – present)
Eric Adman is originally from Boston, Mass and has been on the west coast since 1998 where he attended the University of Washington. He works as a firefighter-paramedic in Shoreline, Washington. He got interested in Swamp Creek after moving to his home in Kenmore. About 200 feet of a tributary, Little Swamp Creek, runs through his yard. Several years ago, his curiosity grew after Adopt-a- Stream canvassed his neighborhood asking if he would be interested in having volunteers restore his stream banks to mimic natural habitat. He agreed, and in 2009 and 2010, they transformed his lawn by planting trees and shrubs. He is now a board member with Adopt-a- Stream and the President of Sno-King Watershed Council where he has been a member since 2008.
After listening to an EPA webinar about GWW, Adman decided to call them in Alabama and soon after the Sno-King Watershed Council received a grant from the Rose Foundation that sparked the implementation of a GWW-backed volunteer water monitoring program in their watershed. He regularly monitors on Little Swamp and Swamp Creeks.
