ClearWater Conservancy’s Deb Nardone Resigns As Executive Director To Step Into The Role Of Executive Director For Foundation For PA Watersheds

On September 21, the Centre County-based
ClearWater Conservancy announced the resignation of Executive Director Deb Nardone effective October 25.  Nardone will be taking over the role of Executive Director of the Foundation for Pennsylvania Watersheds.

A formal search for the organization’s next director is underway with a goal for the selected candidate to begin in early 2024.

“The privilege to work alongside the ClearWater community has been the most rewarding and fulfilling work of my entire career,” stated Nardone. “The talented staff, dedicated board, wonderful volunteers, and the landowners who choose conservation are truly assets in this community.  I know ClearWater will continue to thrive through new leadership and build on ClearWater’s work to make this region an even more amazing place to live, work, and play.” 

“ClearWater’s programming has flourished, and our community support has grown tremendously during Deb’s time with the organization,” stated Donnan Stoicovy, who was appointed interim Executive Director. “I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as Interim Executive Director at this time and look forward to working collaboratively with our staff to support and encourage their continued work and to keep us moving in the positive direction we are already heading thanks in large part to Deb’s leadership through the years.”  

In Nardone’s future role as executive director for the Foundation for Pennsylvania Watersheds, Nardone will be responsible for expanding and supporting the organization’s grantmaking, increasing capacity and support for local efforts to protect healthy, natural streams, clean up pollution, and restore degraded wildlife habitat.
