About Helia Environmental:

Helia Environmental director Lloyd Raleigh has over twenty years of environmental and ecological experience working with landowners, international organizations, government agencies, research institutions and national, state, and local conservation organizations, as well as in-depth studies of the natural world.

In 1996, Lloyd received his master’s degree in Forest Science (MFS) from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies with a focus in management planning and ecosystem management. He graduated in 1994 from the University of South Carolina, where he received a BA and a BS in interdisciplinary studies combining physical and biological sciences with writing and socioeconomics.

Lloyd’s experience includes work, consultations, and service for the following:

This broad experience involves: research, planning, and stewardship at scales ranging from backyards and vacant lots to large nature reserves and bioregions. These three categories form an inseparable triangle for sound land management.

Through work on multiple projects in habitats spanning from barrier beaches to mountain watersheds Lloyd has extensive experience facilitating a successful planning process for managing natural resources and integrating interdisciplinary information for effective decision-making and consensus building. To facilitate projects, he has partnered and worked with landowners, villagers, urban neighborhoods, community leaders, local stakeholders, land trusts, institutions, coalitions, conservation and other commissions; Natural Heritage programs, Natural Resource Conservation Service, Fish and Wildlife Service, and other U.S. and state agencies; and international government agencies and organizations.
