Clint Lehman, Weathering the Storm as a NJ Earth Team Volunteer
Clint Lehman is a man of many talents who has a desire to learn as much as he possibly can about as many subjects as he can. A retired mechanical engineer, Clint earned his degree in engineering from Fairleigh Dickinson University. Following a successful career with ITT Avionics, he now devotes much of his time to volunteering for various organizations, many associated with the health and vitality of Barnegat Bay.
Clint is assisting the USDA-NRCS Soil Survey staff in Hammonton, NJ, with collection of GPS and soils data for the Barnegat Bay Subaqueous Soil Survey. In addition, he has and shares a wealth of knowledge about Barnegat Bay, including its history and ecology. And, given the location of this soil survey, it helps that he is a seasoned boater! The Hammonton team appreciates all that he is contributing to the project!
Clint Lehman is involved in many other endeavors that reflect his interest in the Bay. He is a Master Naturalist with Barnegat Bay Partnership, holds a Shellfish Gardner Certificate with Reclaim the Bay (RCTB), and is an active member of the Barnegat Bay Partnership (BBP) Science Committee. He participated with BBP’s stinging nettles bay beach protective net testing project. He has also raised shellfish as an upweller captain for RCTB. Recently, Clint was involved in designing and installing a solar-powered lighting system at Bayview Park, Brant Beach for one of 30 “Giant Clams,” a public art and educational activity developed by RCTB.
Clint lives with his wife Sue on the water in the Snug Harbor section of Toms River.
