Laguna de Santa Rosa Selects New Executive Director

The Laguna Foundation Board of Directors is pleased to announce that Kevin Munroe, a conservation leader from Fairfax County, Virginia, will assume the position of Executive Director at the Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation on August 3rd, 2015.
Kevin developed his passion as a naturalist in early childhood and subsequently transformed this interest into a rich career that includes conservation resource management, restoration, and environmental education.

Among his recent accomplishments has been leading a 50-acre wetland restoration project within Huntley Meadows Park, a well-known park in Fairfax County's Potomac River Watershed, roughly 12 miles NE of Washington, D.C. In his diverse career, Kevin has excelled in building community partnerships, diversifying fundraising activities, and working with a variety of public and private agencies that include the Army Corps of Engineers, US Fish and Wildlife Services, the Audubon Society, and more. 

"His passion for the natural world and his proven record of bringing various stakeholders together with positive results is impressive," says Raini Sugg, Board President. 

Opportunities for the public to meet and get to know Kevin Munroe are currently being planned. Click here to watch a recent interview with Kevin where he gives a brief introduction and example of a project he supervised.
