Volunteer Spotlight–Hue Holley

Volunteer Spotlight–Hue Holley

Name:  Hue Holley

Town: Malden

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.

 What kinds of questions would you like us to ask our Spotlighters?  Do you have any nominations for future volunteers to feature?  Comment here, or email friends@fells.org or message us on our Facebook feed.  Would you like to get more involved yourself?  Here’s the link:  Click here to let us know how you can help. As you can see, Hue’s told us he’s helped with everything from salamander migration to data migration. That just shows you how diverse our needs and opportunities are here.  We hope to see you around soon!
