The Board of Directors of Friends of the Teton River (FTR) have appointed Amy Verbeten as the organization’s Interim Executive Director. Verbeten’s appointment follows the resignation of Adonia Ripple last month to accept a position with the Four Seasons Resort in Teton Village. Ripple has served as FTR’s executive director for about a year and a half. Verbeten has served as FTR’s Education and Outreach Director since 2007. Prior to her service at FTR, she worked as the Youth Programs Director for the Gore Range Natural Science School in Avon, Colorado, and as an instructor for the National Outdoor Leadership School and the Wilderness Medicine Institute. Verbeten’s duties at FTR have included developing and implementing K-12 education programs and teacher workshops, overseeing the Water Wise community education series, and facilitating diverse stakeholder groups.
