Huron River Watershed Council (HRWC) Executive Director Laura Rubin will be leaving the Council at the end of May to serve as director at the Healing Our Waters-Great Lakes Coalition. The HRWC Board is launching a search for her replacement soon.
We are tremendously grateful for Laura’s service and leadership. She has been a champion for the River for 20 years while leading HRWC. She has worked tirelessly to balance environmental, economic, and recreational demands, knowing that getting people to the river is the first step in developing a broad appreciation for it and the ethic to conserve it.
While saddened to see her go, we recognize the opportunities and challenges her new position offers, and we’re delighted that she’ll be the one taking the helm of the Healing Our Waters-Great Lakes Coalition—especially since HRWC is a member of that coalition. We thank her heartily for her work with HRWC and wish her all the best in her new role.
“Protecting clean water has always been my passion,” said Rubin. “In my new role, I will expand my focus to the Great Lakes– building bipartisan support for federal programs and policies that can benefit the Great Lakes. But the Huron remains my home river, and I will always support HRWC’s efforts to protect the river.”
