The (MRT) Board of Trustees announced that Debbie Bruschaber will become the executive director for the nonprofit environmental land trust. Having served for the past year as Acting Executive Director, Bruschaber will now lead MRT’s environmental efforts in the Santa Monica Mountains.
“Debbie was the obvious choice to fill the position given her demonstrated inter-agency expertise in accomplishing land acquisition, preservation and restoration,” said MRT Board President Steve Hess. “Her passion for environmental stewardship made her the enthusiastic and confident choice of the entire Board.”
Bruschaber has over 30 years experience in all aspects of the real estate industry and has spent the last 16 years focusing on improving water quality, habitat restoration and acquisitions. Joining MRT in 2001, she was instrumental in establishing Headwaters Corner at Calabasas, an environmental interpretive center where MRT is headquartered.
MRT is a non profit organization that preserves, protects, and enhances the natural resources of the Santa Monica Mountains through land acquisition and conservation easements; habitat preservation and restoration; and research and education.
