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.

Newberry earned his master’s degree in forest science from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, and completed his bachelor of arts degree in physics at Middlebury College.

“Daniel Newberry is the perfect fit for where the council is now, and also where we see our future growth,” said JCWC board chairman Russ Mantifel. “He brings with him a compelling vision for the watershed council, a passion for engaging volunteers and citizen scientists, and a deep understanding of the council’s model of community engagement and scientific work.”

Newberry was selected following an extensive search that attracted competitive applicants from across the region and the nation.

“I am humbled at the opportunity to lead such a high-functioning organization,” Newberry said. “With well over 1,000 volunteers working on its projects last year, the council has proven to be a community resource and a community builder. I am excited to be part of that effort.”
