Ben Gregg Announces Retirement from South Carolina Wildlife Federation (SCWF)

After 12 years as SCWF Executive Director, Mr. Gregg will retire on February 1. Carrying on an 87-year organizational legacy dedicated to preserving our natural environment, the 35-member volunteer Board acknowledges and salutes his passion and leadership.

Peers across the state and country recognize Mr. Gregg’s critical role with break-through development successes in three core strategic areas: outdoor education for all ages, habitat enhancement from backyards to major corporate land holdings and, forging leadership coalitions for legislative advocacy on dozens of fronts.

Chair of the Board, Jason Burbage, points to a rare skill possessed by Ben: “The ability to have legislative folks comprehend why, South Carolinians are determined to make sure our decisions today will enhance our grandchildren’s ability to enjoy a pristine natural world we will pass on to them.”

SCWF is one of 51 state non-profit organizations affiliated with and guided by the National Wildlife Federation, headquartered in Washington, DC. Ben has built the SCWF staff into a highly talented, motivated and efficient team that has challenging goals for 2019.

Ms. Sara Green, senior staff member and Education Director will take-on responsibilities as Interim Director.
