Stephan Syz

Raised in a family that fought the filling of Connecticut tidal estuaries for the construction of I-95, Stephan went on to wear hats as a naturalist at the Connecticut Arboretum, a volunteer to establish the Connecticut Citizens Action Group, an environmental planner for the City of Philadelphia and a watershed planner for the State of Vermont. He was the founding Chair of the Montpelier Conservation Commission and the Vermont River Conservancy, a member of the Montpelier City-State Commission, the Chair of the Montpelier-Berlin Bike Path Committee and a member of other non-profit and civic organizations. He has worked to successfully protect many acres of land in Vermont. Stephan lives in Montpelier with his wife, Linn. They have two grown sons, both practicing law in the San Francisco Bay area.
