Pa parks official to lead environment group, PennFuture

Following a four-month national search, the Pennsylvania environmental advocacy organization, PennFuture, today announced
the appointment of Cindy Adams Dunn as
president and CEO.

Dunn was deputy secretary for conservation and technical services with Pennsylvania's Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR).

"We're delighted to have Cindy with us as she is eminently qualified to lead the organization's work tackling air, land and water issues throughout the Commonwealth," said David Lane, chair of PennFuture's board of directors. "Her skills as a manager combined with passion for the environment will prove invaluable as we continue to address climate change and promote a clean energy economy. The board is confident she's the right fit."

Dunn previously served as director of DCNR's Bureau of Recreation and Conservation and is a past executive director of Audubon Pennsylvania. She also worked at the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay for 10 years.

The Pennsylvania native and graduate of Shippensburg College was described by PennFuture as an "avid outdoorswoman, regularly hiking the Appalachian Trail and fishing the Susquehanna River."
