Ben Bagniewski

GIS Analyst

Growing up in the Driftless Area of the Great Lakes region instilled in me a love of nature and a desire to protect it. As a GIS Analyst at Herrera, I’m able to support my colleagues who work on important environmental challenges with maps and environmental data analysis to help them make informed decisions.

Outside of work, I enjoy skiing, fly fishing, backpacking, birding, climbing, and hiking in the mountains with my dog.

Favorite Species:
The Common Loon. They are beautiful birds with a hauntingly peaceful call. They symbolize the wildness of the North that we long for from the depths of our souls.
