Natural Resources Director Named
Join us in welcoming Greg Berman as our new Director of Natural Resources
Mr. Berman spent the last fourteen years as the Coastal Processes Specialist for WHOI Sea Grant and the Cape Cod Cooperative Extension. In this role, he focused on fortifying coastal community resilience to climate change and hazards in Barnstable County.
Mr. Berman has provided direct technical assistance on coastal processes in the form of over 300 site visits on the Cape and Islands, typically with follow-up written reports on a wide variety of issues, issues including coastal bank stabilization, beach grass for erosion control, proposed revetment construction on coastal banks, and dune restoration. Recognized within scientific, nonprofit, and governmental spheres, he’s honed his communication skills through 30+ publications and over 200 presentations.
As a Barnstable County employee, he collaborated with all other relevant County employees (ex. Cape Cod Cooperative Extension, Cape Cod Commission, Dredge, Regional Emergency Planning Committee, and Health & Environment). Mr. Berman’s expertise also spans municipal operations, including ethics, finances, budgets, and procurement. He has played a key role in shaping sections of WHOISG Strategic Plans and crafted multi-million-dollar budgets. Additionally, he’s actively supported towns in grant applications, recently assisting in securing three grants since 2021 with a combined value of over $500,000 for the Pleasant Bay Alliance.
We are excited to welcome him to Team Chatham!
