Paul Mailhot-Singer joined the Housatonic Valley Association last fall as an Americorps member. During his service term at HVA, Paul has conducted outreach and collaborated with partner organizations and local schools to advance and implement the Follow the Forest Initiative.
Paul helped develop Follow the Forest’s wildlife linkage assessment tool, which relies on community science to assess the connections between forests.
Paul received his B.A. in Religious Studies from Pomona College and wrote his thesis on the preservation of sacred forests in Japan and India. In high school, he spent memorable afternoons trail running in the woods that neighbor HVA’s headquarters, and Follow the Forest’s mission of protecting those same woods inspired his return to the valley land.
