Jerry Becker

Jerry Paul Becker grew up on a working farm in western New York where he observed the abundance of the natural world. In 1973, after earning a B.A. degree in psychology and political science from the University of Rochester, Jerry relocated to Oregon.

Since that time, he has studied forests throughout the Pacific Northwest. A quarter-century working in native forests fostered his understanding of natural systems. In 1986, Jerry launched Ecoforestry Management Associates, a forestry consulting firm specializing in stewardship forestry. Jerry is the only SmartWood Certified Resource Manager on the Oregon coast.

Jerry is a founding board member of Friends of Elk River. During Jerry's twenty-five year tenure FOER has won acclaim for establishing the Grassy Knob Wilderness Area and adding Elk River to the National Wild & Scenic River's System.
