Corrie Miller, a scientist and dedicated conservationist, will take over as Executive Director of the Ausable River Association (AsRA) starting Oct. 11.
Miller has a strong background in non-profit management and has most recently worked in Vermont’s Northern Green Mountains as part of the Staying Connected Initiative to find community-based solutions for wildlife habitat protection.
“We are extremely pleased that Corrie has accepted our offer to build on the incredible work of Dr. Carol Treadwell,” said the river association’s board chair, John Lafferty. “Corrie rose to the top of a strong group of candidates. We see a near future where a growing AsRA will be increasingly central to connecting current science with the people who care about the river, together strengthening the health of the Ausable River and its communities.”
“I am particularly excited about the growth potential of the organization and being part of growing it,” Miller said. “Years ago, I fell in love with the Adirondacks when I lived and worked here.”
Miller will move to the Ausable River valley and work side by side with Treadwell, who remains on as contract staff for six months.
