Eric Buher

Eric grew up in the Skagit River Watershed – as a seventh grader, he attended Mountain School in the days before the Environmental Learning Center – and he’s excited to be undertaking graduate studies in the bioregion that he has called home for most of his life. Eric attended Western Washington University where he earned his Bachelors of Science in Mathematics as well as his teaching certificate. He has taught high school mathematics for the past 10 years. Eric is an Eagle Scout, and remains an active volunteer with the Boy Scouts of America, serving in a variety of roles. He enjoys teaching knot-tying, outdoor skills and campfire songs to anyone who will listen. Eric decided to pursue his M.Ed. through North Cascades Institute as a natural way to merge his interests in education and the Great Outdoors.
