HARRISBURG, PA, October 13, 2015

The Nature Conservancy welcomes Carol Collier to its Pennsylvania Board of Trustees. 

Carol Collier serves as Senior Advisor for Watershed Management & Policy and Director of the Environmental Studies and Sustainability Program at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University. She previously served for over 15 years as Executive Director of the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC).

Started in 1951 by concerned scientists, The Nature Conservancy today supports programs in all 50 states and in almost 40 countries, and is supported by over 1 million members - making it the largest global organization focused on protecting nature and preserving life.

“The Nature Conservancy relies upon many supporters and partners to help develop solutions to the most challenging environmental problems,” said Bill Kunze, the Conservancy’s Executive Director in Pennsylvania.  “Carol’s environmental achievements and awards are remarkable, and we are delighted to welcome her to the Board of Trustees.”

Ms. Collier has a B.A. in Biology from Smith College and a Masters in Regional Planning from the University of Pennsylvania.  Prior to leading DRBC, she was Executive Director of Pennsylvania’s 21st Century Environment Commission and was Director of the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection’s Southeast Region.

Using a science-to-solutions approach, The Nature Conservancy focuses on protecting and restoring important lands and waters, transforming how businesses and governments use nature, and inspiring people to see nature as important to them.  In addition to developing innovative strategies to protect the most important lands in Pennsylvania, the Conservancy is a leader in conservation of our rivers and streams and in developing tools to reduce the impacts of energy development on our lands and waters.
