Volunteer Spotlight–Hue Holley
Name: Hue Holley
Profession: Retired Electronic Engineer
Involved Since: 1993
Hue Holley led numerous programs and walks before, during, and after his 7-year tenure as Friends of the Fells president. He initiated a very popular salamander migration program that lasted for years with co-leader Laura Hodgin. Over the years, he led vernal pool fairy shrimp programs, family walks, night walks, and winter storm walks. He tells us, “The nature of the Fells is constantly being challenged by recreational groups. Volunteers are needed to ensure that DCR’s priority is conservation of this beautiful resource.”
He designed the Friends of the Fells database and maintained it for over 23 years. Recently, he helped migrate data into the Wild Apricot program with Noah Kaplan. He’s always been active in advocacy issues. A major contribution was recruiting retired Executive Director Mike Ryan into the Friends of the Fells.
