Headwaters Conservation Group Welcomes New Director

From Potter County Today

Headwaters Resource Conservation and Development Council recently welcomed Dale E. Fox as its new executive director. Chairman Matt Marusiak said her diverse background and experience will help RC&D in its mission to address conservation needs in Potter, Cameron, McKean, Elk, Clinton, Centre, Clearfield and Jefferson counties. She has served on the Conservation and Natural Resources Advisory Council and the Pennsylvania Downtown Center. In addition to supporting ongoing projects, Fox will be responsible for fundraising and new initiatives to support environmental conservation in the areas of agriculture, forest resources, community development, environmental education, water resources and recreation.

“I am particularly interested in exploring how Headwaters can play a role related to the development of the shale gas industry,” she said. “We have a responsibility to help monitor and protect sensitive natural resources and to pursue research opportunities for cooperative conservation and community projects with industry partners.” Headwaters RC&D Council, which was formed in 1975, has most recently been engaged in free water quality testing for private wells and springs, acid mine remediation, grazing conferences, no-till workshops, a weed wildlife program, and alternative energy initiatives.
