    Bram Gunther

    Bram Gunther is the Chief of Forestry, Horticulture, and Natural Resources for the New York City Parks Department. He is also the President of the Natural Areas Conservancy, a new public/private partnership recently established to expand City efforts to conserve and restore thousands of acres of forests and wetlands. He joined the Parks Department in 1991 as an Urban Park Ranger, eventually becoming the Citywide Director. He transferred to Central Forestry and oversaw the growth of the division, including the creation of the Greenstreets and Green Infrastructure programs and the merger with the Natural Resources Group. In his current position, he creates and executes Parks policy and programs on forestry, horticulture, green infrastructure, and ecological conservation. He has a B.A. in American literature from State University of New York at Purchase and a M.S. in environmental management from the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies.
