Chris Schimmoeller, President

“I grew up outdoors,” says Chris Schimmoeller, current Board President.  “The natural world has always made me happy and fulfilled, and every day I feel lucky to be able to work for the conservation of this irreplaceably beautiful land where we live.”  A 1991 graduate of Georgetown College and a 1991-1992 Fulbright Scholar to India, Chris has worked on issues including national forest protection, regional water supply, smart growth, walkable communities, and comprehensive planning.  Chris homeschools her daughters, Natalie, age 14, and Sophie, age 11, in a house she built with her husband Joel Dufour in northern Franklin County.

Chris Schimmoeller has been a Board member since 2007.
