Bill Adams, Danielle Clark, Joy Greene, and Cooper Lambla have recently joined the Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation as members of the Board of Directors. Each of them bring unique perspectives and talents to the organization.

Bill serves as Vice President of National Accounts at the Coca-Cola Company in Charlotte and plans to retire to Lake James. Danielle offers her technical expertise to the Riverkeeper as she is an Environmental Specialist at Hart & Hickman specializing in stream and wetland regulations and environmental due diligence. Joy got her feet wet by working with groups who protect water quality of the Chattahoochee River (Atlanta), the Snake River (Wyoming), and the Middle Fork of the Salmon River (Idaho). Lastly, Cooper combines his passion for outdoor recreation (he’s an avid whitewater kayaker) with his professional skills as Creative Director at the Whitewater Center. Click here to read bios of all the Board members.

Executive Director John Searby says, “We are so excited to have Joy, Danielle, Cooper, and Bill joining our leadership team here at Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation. They bring a broad array of experiences and represent a continued effort by our organization to have representation from a variety of geographic, socio-economic, and professional background areas.”

John adds, “Our board has been critical in helping me make a smooth first year transition into the Executive Director’s seat at CRF. I am appreciative of the support they have shown me personally and the level of engagement I’ve seen from them as we launch into a very exciting phase of our organization’s history.”

Catawba Riverkeeper is grateful for the time and talent each of our Board members dedicate to the Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation. Without strong leadership, CRF could not continue to educate, engage, and protect.
