Elizabeth Waddill Joins Board of National Parks Group

Beaumont, TX – Elizabeth Waddill, conservation chairwoman and national affairs delegate for the Magnolia Garden Club and small business owner, has been elected to the Board of Trustees of the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA). The board is the governing body for the nonprofit, national parks watchdog organization.

“Elizabeth has been a valued partner in many of our regional efforts in Texas, and we’re thrilled to have her join our board,” said NPCA Acting President Theresa Pierno. “Her experience will help guide the organization as we approach the centennial of the National Park Service in 2016.”

Waddill also serves on the board of directors for the Beaumont Community Players and volunteers for various organizations, including the Buckner Children’s Village, the Art Museum of Southeast Texas, All Saints Episcopal School and Kelly High School. She lives with her family in Beaumont, and has a long interest in environmental issues.

The Magnolia Garden Club has supported a variety of NPCA projects in Texas, including a State of the National Parks report and continued longleaf pine reforestation events for Big Thicket National Preserve.

Since 1919, the nonpartisan NPCA has been the leading voice of the American people in the fight to safeguard our National Park System. NPCA and its 800,000 members and supporters work together to protect the National Park System and preserve our nation's natural, historical, and cultural heritage for generations to come.
