The St. Johns Riverkeeper organization is pleased to welcome aboard Lisa Rowe Rinaman, former City of Jacksonville Policy Director, as the next St. Johns Riverkeeper, the chief advocate and public voice for the St. Johns River. Rinaman will assume the role in February from Neil Armingeon who previously announced his intent to retire at the end of January.
"The St. Johns River plays a critical role in our region's quality of life and our economy. To ensure that this great natural resource is protected for generations to come, we must build on St. Johns Riverkeeper’s past accomplishments and continue our campaign for a clean and healthy river," said Rinaman. "For years, my passion has been working to identify opportunities to advance legislative and policy initiatives that protect the environment and our waterways. I am honored to once again have the chance to combine my advocation with my vocation for the betterment of the St. Johns River."
