Trevor Freeman

Land Stewardship Specialist

Trevor Freeman grew up on a cattle farm in Rutherford County, North Carolina, where his family has deep roots and ties to the land. He is an alumnus of Appalachian State and East Carolina Universities and has an MA in American history. He previously has years of experience working in parks, historic sites, and museums, and has led numerous outdoor interpretive hikes and paddles exploring environmental and social history for public audiences in western NC. He is particularly interested in the relationship between people and the natural environment and is passionate about connecting others to this knowledge of place. He has also served as an AmeriCorps trails coordinator in the Hickory Nut Gorge, a biologically and historically rich area which has long stoked his interest in conservation.  

Trevor is excited to join Upstate Forever as the land stewardship specialist, helping to monitor and conserve a wide array of lands and natural resources and to build or maintain relationships with landowners in over 70 properties.  

In his free time Trevor is an avid fly fisher and hiker, enjoys a leisurely river paddle, plays guitar, banjo, and mandolin, and loves live music. He also continues to research, write, and speak on the American Revolutionary War and other local history topics.
