January 28, 2016 – Waterfowl Chesapeake is pleased to welcome Margaret Enloe as its new Executive Director. Enloe, who was announced at Waterfowl Festival last November and officially joined the organization the first of the year and is charged with working with the Board of Directors to grow the organization and define and advance the organization’s waterfowl conservation work and programs.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome Margaret to Waterfowl Chesapeake,” said Albert Pritchett, Waterfowl Chesapeake Board President. “Her energy, passion and conservation background are exactly what our organization needs to take its conservation work and impact to the next level. She has a proven record as an outgoing leader, friend and fund raiser, volunteer coordinator and creative supervisor.”
Over the past decade, Enloe has established a thorough understanding of Bay restoration and conservation efforts, policy, science and public relations through her work as the Communications Director for the Chesapeake Bay Program and Grassroots Coordinator for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation.
“I’m excited to use my experience, knowledge and waterfowl enthusiasm to build the efforts and awareness of Waterfowl Chesapeake and the Waterfowl Festival in the region and across the watershed,” said Enloe.
Established in 2011, Waterfowl Chesapeake’s mission is to create, restore and conserve waterfowl and their habitat throughout the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. The organization is the primary beneficiary of the annual Waterfowl Festival, which has raised nearly $6 million for waterfowl conservation, research and education over its 45-year history.
In addition to advancing Waterfowl Chesapeake’s conservation work, Enloe will also support the annual Waterfowl Festival and is looking forward to developing a long-term plan for the historic Waterfowl Building in downtown Easton.
