CBF Announces New Pennsylvania Executive Director
Campbell to Lead PA Clean Water Efforts for Bay Foundation
(HARRISBURG, PA)—The Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) is pleased to announce Harry Campbell as the new Executive Director for the Pennsylvania office. Having spent the past nine years as CBF's Pennsylvania scientist, Campbell is a respected resource on technical, policy, and science issues and will now direct all of CBF's policy, advocacy, and restoration efforts in Pennsylvania.
"Harry Campbell's selection to be CBF's new Pa. Executive Director was a slam dunk decision," said William C. Baker, CBF President. "He has been a critical member of our team for many years, a natural leader and an exceptionally talented scientist. What a combination. While Pennsylvania has made significant investments and strides toward improving water quality locally and downstream in the Chesapeake Bay, we still have a lot of work to do. Harry and the Pa. team of professionals are committed to making clean water a priority for all Pennsylvanians."
With nearly 20 years of experience in water quality protection and restoration, his professional experience spans academia, private consulting, governmental, and non-governmental sectors. Campbell holds a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Resource Management and a Masters degree in Environmental Pollution Control from the Pennsylvania State University.
"For decades, CBF and our Pennsylvania partners and members have worked to improve and protect our waters by advocating for science-based policies, spearheading efforts to provide assistance for farmers and communities, providing educational opportunities for students and leaders, and implementing on-the-ground restoration efforts that have resulted in the restoration of over 2,000 miles of streamside forests," said Harry Campbell, PA Executive Director. "The health of our waters will be a lasting legacy we leave to our children, and it is our hope, and our goal, to ensure that our waters are clean and healthy for this and future generations."
