Eric Curtis

Reforestation – Crew Leader

Howdy folks, I’m Eric.

A decade ago, I decided to trade the Ontario flatlands for the majestic peaks of British Columbia, chasing the allure of mountains and the promise of endless snow-covered adventures. Let me tell you, it has exceeded all expectations.

Currently working as a ski patrol at White Water ski resort, I get to combine my love for the mountains with my passion for first aid. Each day is an opportunity to blend the thrill of skiing with the responsibility of ensuring everyone’s safety, making it a truly fulfilling experience.

I love connecting with people through the universal language of music. While I might not play any instruments (yet), my soul finds expression through singing. Music is one of the ways I share joy and create meaningful connections.

So, here’s to adventure, and pursuing passions. I invite you to join me on this incredible journey. Cheers to the mountains, the melodies, and the moments that make life truly extraordinary.

What Planters Can Expect From Me

I’m all about cultivating a crew that’s more than just colleagues – we’re comrades, a tight-knit family ready to conquer the planting frontier together. Count on me to have your back, making sure every planter feels not just seen and heard but fully prepared to tackle whatever comes our way. In my book, no one waits for trees – I’ve never left a planter hanging, and that won’t change now. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a fresh face in the industry, consider me your partner in turning your planting passion into a skill that blossoms.

What I Expect From Planters

Tree-planting isn’t a walk in the park, but we’re here to tackle it head-on.

I’m looking for folks with grit as fierce as a squirrel on a bird feeder, humor as wild as the woods, curiosity that rivals a cat with a cardboard box, and a commitment to not just tackle challenges but conquer them together. Teamwork is the backbone of our planting adventures. I’m searching for people who understand the strength in unity and that our combined strength is what turns each planting endeavor into a triumph.

So, if you’re ready to join this spirited journey, where every challenge is an opportunity for victory, send me a message!
