Join us in welcoming Cameron Baxley, Director of Outreach and Advocacy, to the Apalachicola Riverkeeper team. Cameron has been an active volunteer with Apalachicola Riverkeeper for several years. We’re delighted to have her on staff. She jumped right in, co-leading our recent Owl Creek Eco-educational Outing.
Born and raised in Montgomery, Alabama, Cameron grew up tromping around in the Mobile-Tensaw Delta and found her first love, water. Determined to somehow transition a fervent hobby into a career, she moved to Charleston, SC to obtain a degree in Marine Biology. For nearly two decades Cameron ran the professional gamut of working in the academic, private and government sectors as a scientist. She says, “It is with sincere gratitude and earnest anticipation that I step into the role of Director of Outreach and Advocacy for Apalachicola Riverkeeper.”
Cameron explains, “When I first moved to Apalachicola six years ago to work as a scallop biologist with FWC, I noticed a trend of nearly everyone I became friends with had volunteered their time with Apalachicola Riverkeeper. So, I began volunteering. And serendipitously I discovered Apalachicola Riverkeeper’s goals and my goals are aligned: to create a strong, cohesive network of stewards to protect and restore the Apalachicola River and Bay.”
A hard fast hydrophile, with a drive for problem solving, look for Cameron Baxley somewhere in, on, near water trying to fix something. Never hesitate to reach out to her. Cameron can be reached at [email protected]
