Ethan Taxman, Green Infrastructure Program Associate

Joined June 2017

Ethan Taxman grew up in Milwaukee less than a mile from Lake Michigan. Whether exploring urban river trails or enjoying the vast lakefront, he has always gravitated toward Wisconsin’s waterways. As the Green Infrastructure Program Associate, Ethan works primarily in the neighborhoods around Milwaukee’s 30th Street Industrial Corridor. Working closely with Staff Attorney and Climate Resilience Project Manager, Pam Ritger, Ethan performs green infrastructure installations and conducts extensive community outreach across the 30th Street Corridor to manage storm water where it falls.

Ethan earned his Bachelor’s of Arts degrees from the University of Colorado–Boulder in Environmental Studies and Photography. He returned home to earn a Master’s degree in Freshwater Sciences and Technology from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee.

Prior to Clean Wisconsin, Ethan served as the intern to the Biology team at the U.S. EPA Region 8 Lab in Golden, Colorado, as the Waterfront Researcher at a local non-profit, Harbor District Inc., and on the FreshCoast740 team as an intern with Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District.

Favorite things to do outdoors in Wisconsin: Spend time along the Milwaukee River Riverwalk and Lake Michigan, hike, play tennis, and photograph his surroundings.
