Newberry new Executive Director of Johnson Creek Watershed Council
The Johnson Creek Watershed Council last week announced the selection of Daniel Newberry as its next executive director. He will relocate to the watershed area from southern Oregon and will begin leading JCWC on Feb. 26.
Founded in 1995, JCWC is a grassroots nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote restoration and stewardship of the Johnson Creek watershed through science and community engagement.
Newberry is succeeding previous Executive Director Matt Clark, who stepped down last month to move to South America with his family after seven years leading the organization.
Newberry leaves his current position as executive director of the Siskiyou Field Institute in Selma. He has previously served as the principal consultant at Newberry Watershed Consulting and executive director of the Applegate River Watershed Council in Jacksonville. He has worked both as a federal and tribal hydrologist and as an educator.
