A letter from Stacy Beaugh, Executive Director of RiversEdge West


Hello Friends, Colleagues, and Supporters,
I am writing to tell you that I will be leaving my post at RiversEdge West at the end of June. Our family has made the difficult but exciting decision to move from the Grand Valley to Durango, Colorado, in support of my husband’s career.  
It has been a wonderful adventure here at the helm of RiversEdge West the last 9 1/2 years and it has been a pleasure watching the organization grow and succeed thanks to everyone involved. Our team of staff, board, donors, members, and partners that I have had the opportunity to work with are incredible and I will miss you all a great deal. To everyone that I have had the pleasure of working with; I want to thank you for challenging me, supporting me, and inspiring me through this journey of nonprofit leadership. I don’t know entirely what is next for me except that I am going to take a slight break to be home with my two lovely kiddos and settle into our new home this summer. 
The amazing and competent team of staff at RiversEdge West will carry-on with their programs as the Board of Directors brings on new leadership. Rusty Lloyd, RiversEdge West's Program Director, will serve as the Interim Executive Director until the post is filled. I wish I could have reached out to each of you individually to announce the news, but there are just too many people to connect with.  Thank you for understanding and for your patience during the transition.
Please help us circulate the attached job announcement and help us find the next leader of our organization! 
I strongly believe in the mission and values of RiversEdge West and will support healthy rivers now and into the future. Thank you all for being great champions of rivers – I look forward to seeing you at membership events and hope I can connect with many of you before I depart! 
Please be in touch! 
Best regards,


RiversEdge West's

mission is to advance the restoration of riparian lands through collaboration, education, and technical assistance.
