Thanks for your interest in Three Rivers!

As Three Rivers Board Chair, I am proud of what we have accomplished over the years, and remain committed to connecting people with nature through collaborative partnerships, long-term environmental stewardship and fiscally responsible management. I am particularly excited about our recent initiatives to bring more of Three Rivers’ exceptional recreation and natural resources programs into our communities, especially for children and seniors.

I invite you to check out my blog on this website for updates on our many activities at Three Rivers. You can also sign up for my monthly newsletter to stay in touch, and I hope you will please consider joining our 800 volunteers at Three Rivers!
