An experienced field scientist, Bill Young has more than 35 years experience in wetland banking, mitigation, monitoring and permitting. His project portfolio includes more than 45 coastal salt marsh and freshwater wetland projects as well as upland habitat projects. Most recently, his work has centered around multiple restoration projects in Jamaica Bay, including the Yellow Bar Hassock project.
Young’s experience ranges from the design of wastewater treatment wetlands to restoration of Superfund sites. It encompasses the monitoring of the endangered piping plover on critical dune restoration projects, post-Sandy. Bill is just as comfortable in construction as he is in consulting. In fact, he is perhaps most at home out in the field running crews.
Bill is an adjunct professor at the University of Pennsylvania where he has taught Ecology in the Graduate School of Design for the past 13 years. He has also taught at City College of New York and Temple University.
