Steven Dudley, Riverkeeper

Steven grew up learning to the love the Coosa from an early age by taking every chance to attend summer camp at YMCA Camp Chandler located on Lake Jordan. There he got to run around and swim, fish, and “blob” to his heart’s content. Later he would take that love of the river and explore the different areas of Alabama by canoe or kayak.  Steven is happiest when he can share his love for the outdoors with friends and family.
 
Steven interned with the Coosa Riverkeeper in 2014 and admired their goals and continued showing support as a volunteer after the internship concluded. He graduated from Birmingham-Southern College in 2016 with a B.A. in Urban Environmental Studies and started working at Spectrum Environmental Consulting. At Spectrum, he initially worked as a Stormwater Technician working on Construction/Industrial Stormwater Common Best Management Practices inspections and reporting. He later worked at Spectrum as a Natural Resources Biologist focusing on Waters of the U.S. delineations and permitting.
