Meet Our Board
Our Board is comprised of dedicated bat and outdoor education enthusiasts of varied backgrounds.
Leslie has been a wildlife enthusiast all her life. One of her earliest memories is feeding grass stems to a nestful of almost-weaned meadow voles she discovered in her backyard. She housed and bred snakes, turtles, lizards, frogs, and insects before becoming a zookeeper with the Smithsonian’s National Zoological Park. She left the zoo to join Montgomery County Parks as a park naturalist. In 2001, Leslie opened Bat World NOVA, a satellite rescue center of Bat World Sanctuary, so that she could pursue a lifelong love of bats. In 2011, she founded The Save Lucy Campaign to focus on white nose syndrome, bats native to the eastern US, youth advocacy, and conservation education through art. Over the past 20 years, she has cared for well over 1,000 bats and has maintained a colony of bats that visit schools and other venues to educate the public about bats and wildlife conservation.
Chris grew up with Hidden Oaks Nature center and has been educating children and family about the wild world for the past 15 years. He has been interested in supporting local bats for years and worked with Bat World NOVA to erect bat rocket- boxes for his Eagle Scout project. He recently graduated from the University of Virginia with a degree in Commerce and works in Finance and Accounting at Maximus, Inc. – a health and human services local government contractor.
The Save Lucy Campaign seeks individuals to serve on the board of directors. The time commitment is approximately 2 hours per week. Board members are required to attend board meetings via phone conference or web meeting 3 times per year. Candidates should have some familiarity with nonprofit management, conservation issues and environmental education; however, a diverse board makes for a strong organization so we welcome candidates with other strengths.
