LITTLETON, Mass. — New England Forestry Foundation is pleased to welcome Frank Lowenstein, who serves as Deputy Director beginning at the end of November 2013. Frank will oversee the organization’s fundraising and communications, and will provide input on strategies to address new audiences and issues in compelling ways.

Frank brings over 20 years of experience in conservation, with particularly strong skills in communications and marketing. In his role as Director of Forest Health for the North America Conservation Region of The Nature Conservancy in the late 2000s, he oversaw efforts that produced a 20 percent swing in public opinion and reduced the spread of non-native insects. Most recently, he served TNC as Climate Adaptation Strategy Leader for the Global Climate Change Team, and previously he focused on forest conservation in New England. Frank has published three books, including the newly released Clothed in Bark.

“When I moved to New England to attend college, I was immediately drawn to the woods. I took every course offered by the Harvard Forest, became president of the outing club, and generally spent every free moment adventuring. That love of our maple-covered hills, rocky summits, and spruce-fir forests has stayed with me, and I pretty much still spend all my free time in the woods. I’m thrilled to join the staff and board of NEFF in devoting my efforts to the conservation and sustainable management of New England’s forests,” comments Frank about his new position.

Frank may be reached at flowenstein@newenglandforestry.org. Please feel free to send a note to welcome him aboard!
