BIO:
Mike Harding is one of the leading technical experts in the erosion control industry. A graduate from Purdue University, Michael has over 30 years experience in erosion and sediment control, resource management, mined land reclamation, wildlife habitat development, and nonpoint source pollution control both in the United States and overseas. Mike played a key role in the emergency soil stabilization efforts following the 1991 Oakland firestorm, 1993 Southern California fires and the 2003 San Diego County/City Fires. His efforts focused on leadership, financial assistance and technical guidance in the form of post-fire hazard assessment, design of mitigation strategies, and oversight of extensive mitigation implementation efforts before the onset of winter rains. Mike specializes in the evaluation, research, development, and application of cost-effective erosion control materials and techniques, and is the co-designer and past director of the San Diego State University Soil Erosion Research Laboratory. He is a past President of the International Erosion Control Association (IECA) and Expedition Leader for the Flight of Discovery.
