NEW BERN — Changes in leadership are happening at Sound Rivers, a nonprofit organization that guards the health of the Neuse and Tar-Pamlico river basins.
Katy Langley has accepted the position of Lower Neuse Riverkeeper after the departure last month of Travis Graves. Langley earned her bachelor’s degree in earth and environmental science from the University of New Orleans in 2013. She has since worked with the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation, interned at the Jean Lafitte National Historic Park and Preserve, and then worked at Kleinschmidt Associates as an environmental science technician in Columbia, South Carolina.
While working for Kleinschmidt Associates as an environmental science technician in Columbia, she volunteered with the Congaree Riverkeeper. She now lives in New Bern and is set to begin work June 26.
Also, Harrison Marks, Sound Rivers’ executive director, announced this month his intention to retire from the organization later this year.
