Orange County Coastkeeper Seeks to Grow Board of Directors

Qualified community leaders invited to protect local waters

ORANGE COUNTY, September 7, 2016 – Orange County Coastkeeper invites interested residents to join its board of directors to protect local waters. The nonprofit environmental organization advocates for fishable, swimmable, drinkable and sustainable water in Orange County, with programs targeting marine restoration, water conservation and water quality enforcement.

“Since our founding, Coastkeeper’s board of directors has led us to tackle local water quality from every angle – from litigation to weekend cleanups,” says Orange County Coastkeeper Board Chair Steve Bone. “We’re looking for the right people to join in keeping our waters clean and beautiful for future generations to enjoy.”

Coastkeeper seeks to fill three positions on its board of directors. Qualified candidates will have experience in community leadership, enthusiasm for environmental conservation and strong communication and fundraising skills.

“This is an opportunity to play a major role in promoting clean, healthy waters for all of Orange County,” says Coastkeeper Executive Director Garry Brown. “Coastkeeper is the only local environmental organization that contributes hard-hitting legal work, effective marine restoration and community education. New board members will lead comprehensive solutions to environmental issues that affect everyone in the community.”
