News: Tom Warhol joins Board of Directors
The WRP welcomes Tom Warhol, who joined the Board of Directors in February. Tom and his wife, Lisa, live in Bethel-Gilead.
“We are grateful to have Tom’s passion for rivers and exceptional skill set working on behalf of the White River watershed,” said Executive Director Mary Russ.
Tom has had extensive experience in the natural resources field, working for The Nature Conservancy, the American Chestnut Foundation, the Massachusetts Riverways Program, and the New England Wildflower Society before moving into nonprofit fundraising with VINS and now as Grants Manager for the Vermont Foodbank. He also earned a master’s degree in forestry from UMass Amherst.
In addition Tom has managed a freelance writing and editing career since 2001; the result has been a dozen books with a focus on environmental education and wildlife conservation. Tom and his wife are active in the Bethel community as well – Tom is a member of the Bethel Conservation Commission and Lisa is the town’s Herald correspondent.
