As the Regional Executive Director for the National Wildlife Federation's Northeast Regional Center, Curtis is working with an excellent staff and terrific state affiliates to combat climate change, jump-start a clean energy economy, safeguard wildlife and natural resources, and connect people with nature.
He spends a lot of time working with the region's affiliates, other organizations and government officials to advance key policy priorities such as national clean energy/climate legislation, getting Northeast states to work together to safeguarding wildlife from global warming, and winning funding for key conservation projects.
