GOCWC is celebrating a staff transition including Rita Baker’s retirement! Rita has been our coordinator for more than 13 years. She built GOCWC from the ground up, preparing vital habitat information, creating partnerships and completing restoration projects. We wish her well on her new endeavors!

GOCWC is thrilled to announce Tom Gaskill as our new Executive Director! Tom, pictured below, has an extensive career committed to improving natural resources and environmental education at South Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve and the Oregon Zoo. 

Please come meet Rita and Tom along with the rest of the GOCWC on Tuesday June 29th 6:30pm at Oregon City Brewing Co.
