The Farmington River Watershed Association (FRWA) welcomes Eileen Fielding as its new Executive Director. Ms. Fielding comes to FRWA from her position as Executive Director of the Hoosic River Watershed Association in Williamstown, MA, and has many years’ experience in other environmental organizations as well. She holds a doctorate in ecology from the University of Connecticut and has taught at Trinity College, St. Joseph College, Wesleyan University, and the University of Chicago.

About her new position, Fielding commented, “The Farmington River is a tremendous natural asset. It’s a privilege to join the terrific team at FRWA that looks after this river, and I’m very eager to get started on the job.” Board president Frank Untermeyer added, “I’m very confident that she will make an outstanding Executive Director.” Ms. Fielding will start full-time work at FRWA on June 2, succeeding Eric Hammerling, who is now Executive Director at the Connecticut Forest & Park Association.
