Tali MacArthur has been named Program Director for the Coldwater Heritage Partnership and PA Council of Trout Unlimited with over 10 years’ experience in the environmental conservation and management field.
During a career at the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, Tali coordinated the Clean Marina Program, an incentive-based effort to encourage marina owners to reduce their ecological impacts on marine waters and habitats.
She promoted the creation of public access trails and walkways along the urban Hudson River waterfront of north New Jersey. She also coordinated the NJ Volunteer Stream Monitoring Program and recruited and trained AmeriCorps volunteers as NJ Watershed Ambassadors who worked closely with local communities to monitor stream health and provide watershed education and outreach to local residents.
Tali’s passion for outdoor recreation was ignited while she was living in Seattle, Wash., for graduate school. Bike rides and hikes with spectacular vistas of the Pacific Ocean, the Cascade mountain range, and the Gorge at George along the Columbia River inspired a desire to ensure that such critical landscapes and habitats are protected for fish and wildlife while still allowing for the use and enjoyment of those resources by local communities.
Tali brings that passion to CHP and PATU and hopes that her work will serve to conserve and protect Pennsylvania’s coldwater streams and the legacy of fisheries they provide for residents and visitors alike.You can reach her at 814-359-5233 or email@example.com.
