Erik enjoys living in the mountains, off the grid, and, when he finds the time, playing music and kayaking.
Erik, GIS Technician, is the newest employee to join us at the RCD. No stranger to the area Erik has lived in the county for over 6 years, moving here from San Luis Obispo.
So, what does a GIS Technician at the RCD do? You will find your answer if you look around at the District website www.tcrcd.net specifically, at the updated Weaverville Basin Trail link. Erik is responsible for updating the Klamath Resource Information System database program (KRIS) using Klamath/Trinity watershed monitoring data from various resource agencies, which is available to the public. He also provides maps to District project coordinators and managers to help with the implementation of our projects.
But, thatís not all, Erik, owner of Mountain Design, a graphics and sign business, has been indispensable creating displays and graphic layouts for our education and outreach projects. The District is fortunate to have someone like Erik, who weaves strong technical skills with an artistís eye for style.
