Eric Feldbaum, CPRP, Director of the Office of Community Recreation New Hampshire Division of Parks and Recreation within the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources

Eric has been with the Division for nine years and resides in Concord NH. While living in NH full time since 2011, he has been continuously exploring all the great recreational opportunities the state has to offer.

He was finally able to land his dream job working for NH State Parks. One of his responsibilities is overseeing the Land and Water Conservation Fund for the State of New Hampshire as designated by the Governor. Since beginning, this role Eric has awarded over $12 million to 40 NH local communities for the acquisition and development of outdoor recreation.

Eric’s passion for this program has led him to become an executive board member on the National Association of State Outdoor Recreation Liaison Officers (NASORLO), an organization whose primary role is to advocate for the state assistance program for the Land and Water Conservation Fund. As a result of his work at the national level in training and advocacy, he has been awarded the Service to NASORLO Award two consecutive years (2020 and 2021). Whether he is meeting with local communities or congressional members he continues to educate people about the Land and Water Conservation Fund and he is excited to share that with you today which he hopes will lead to you all submitting great grant applications.
