We are pleased to announce the selection of Doug Serrill as our projects and events coordinator. This is a new position at the Watershed Council and one that will have a big impact on the organization as a whole.Serrill comes to the Watershed Council from the San Francisco Bay Area. There he managed native plant nurseries and coordinated community-based restoration projects for Save The Bay, a regional conservation and advocacy organization.
“We are very excited to grow the organization and to have Doug on board,” said Holly Loff, executive director. She added “he has already jumped right into the fray and is working to expand our signature events. With his background, we have no doubt that he will also be a great asset for our restoration projects. The community can expect more volunteer opportunities with ERWC, and Doug’s personality will make these opportunities educational while also a lot of fun.”
Serrill joins Loff as well as Kate Burchenal who serves as the Watershed Council’s education and outreach coordinator.
Eagle River Watershed Council encourages the community to come out and discover our rivers on August 9th at the 5th annual RiverFest presented by Oldcastle SW Group. The event provides an opportunity to float the Upper Colorado River, explore new Eagle County Open Space access points, and meet the Watershed Council board and staff, including Serrill. Following the float, there will be a family-friendly party at Colorado River Ranch with live music, local beer and wine, dinner by Moe’s Original BBQ, dancing, a bouncy castle and more. Tickets are available online.
