Dan D.

Conservation Technology Coordinator

Before supporting the USDA Northeast Climate Hub, Dan served the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) as State Resource Conservationist in Pennsylvania for eight years, and as a field conservationist in New York for ten years prior. Originally from Maine and raised on a poultry farm, Dan studied agriculture at Kansas State University and served in the Peace Corps teaching Agroforestry in the Central African Republic. Dan Dostie joined the USDA Northeast Climate Hub as a project liaison and subject matter link to NRCS conservation technology and programs. Dan’s primary project at the Northeast Climate Hub is to develop and provide training to USDA employees, extension agents, educators, consultants and other advisors helping agricultural producers and other working lands managers adapt to changing climatic patterns. A forthcoming publication called “Adaptation Resources for Agriculture” will guide users to assess and respond to the impacts of changing precipitation and temperature patterns and increasingly extreme weather events
