In 2011, Jeff coordinated an inventory of barriers to brook trout movement in the Sunday River and Bear River sub-watersheds of the Androscoggin River for the Androscoggin River Watershed Council.

Outside of his work with the Council Jeff has taught the “Living Connections” environmental education program for Lakes Environmental Association to grade school students in the Lakes Region of southwestern Maine, and currently teaches a summer school class on river science to similarly-aged children for the LOOK Program in Oxford.
