Bear-Paw Announces New Executive Director The Bear-Paw Regional Greenways Board of Directors is pleased to announce that Katrina Amaral will be our new Executive Director, beginning on November 1. Katrina has a unique combination of wildlife conservation and land protection skills and has spent her career working with the wildlife and landscapes of New England. She has previously worked for Bear-Paw as the Land Protection Specialist and for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as a shorebird technician focused on endangered species management. She also has experience with the local forest products industry.
Katrina’s background in wildlife protection has allowed her to develop a holistic vision of conservation that encompasses Bear-Paw’s mission to protect a network of land to preserve wildlife, water and natural resources. “People are key to successful conservation however you approach it, whether you’re working to preserve an individual species, unfragmented scenic land, or a family farm. With the support of neighbors and others who care about the land and all it offers, we can reach our goal of conserving land for people and wildlife.”
"The Board welcomes Katrina’s ideas for expanding Bear-Paw’s reach and her passion for conservation," said Board Chairperson Hal Kreider. "Please stop by our new office at 1557 1st NH Turnpike (Rt 4) in Northwood to say hello to Katrina, and join us in welcoming her to the Bear-Paw Team."
Bear-Paw Regional Greenways is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit land trust with a mission to permanently conserve a network of lands that protects our region’s water, wildlife habitat, forests, and farmland.
