Mark Gold leaves Heal the Bay for UCLA

mark-gold-blog.jpgMark Gold, a 23-year veteran of Heal the Bay and the group's president for many years, is stepping down to become associate director of UCLA's Institute of the Environment and Sustainability. He will remain on the board of Heal the Bay. The board says it will meet "to determine a management structure," but for now Executive Director Karin Hall and Associate Director Alix Hobbs "will continue to provide day-to-day management and organizational and fiscal oversight."

Gold, as you may have read here before, has been blogging in recent years. My favorite post (aside from his clashes with seafood eater-brother Jonathan Gold) was this one where his wife makes him go on a whale-watch boat and he beholds the blue whales out in the bay.

Heal the Bay was founded in 1985 by Dorothy Green and other activists to stop sewage dumping into Santa Monica Bay. It has grown into a larger environmental mission. Green died in 2008.
