Manchester, CT – Fuss & O’Neill recently hired Michael Soares as a wetlands scientist for its water and natural resources department.
Having previously worked for the Eastern Connecticut Conservation District, his practical experience with the soils and waterbodies of Connecticut, as well as his dedication to public outreach, creates specialized knowledge to enhance Fuss & O’Neill’s environmental services.
His new role will take him into the field where he will perform wetland and watercourse delineations, vegetation surveys, and ecological surveys.
Soares will be working for Josh Wilson, PWS, who has been with Fuss & O’Neill for more than 15 years. “Michael’s creative approach to resource management will be a huge asset to our team. Land use is constantly changing, and Michael brings resourceful, practical experience to solve our clients’ diverse needs.”
Soares feels a deep connection with the land: “You can look at a landscape and see history. You can see what was there before you. And you can look at soil and see what’s happening now. We can learn so much from what’s beneath our feet.”
