New Director of Education and Director of Conservation Roles Announced

Hobcaw Barony announces the promotion of Zeb Quattlebaum to director of conservation and Richard Camlin to director of education, effective August 30.

Quattlebaum, who has been with the Belle W. Baruch Foundation for nearly seven years, previously held the coordinator of natural resource management position. Quattlebaum has advanced progressively through the organization, playing a pivotal part in conserving the natural resources at Hobcaw Barony.

In the role, Quattlebaum will establish and execute a conservation program for the foundation to achieve objectives set for natural resource conservation and historic preservation by the Belle W. Baruch Foundation Board of Trustees and Executive Director. In addition, he will assist the executive director in developing and implementing a natural resource management plan, including recommendations for forest health, fire prevention, critical and unique habitat protection, marine and estuary management.

Former coordinator of adult education, Camlin, has worked tirelessly in the education, collections, and outreach programs at Hobcaw Barony since joining the team 24 years ago. Former roles held include interpreter and senior interpreter before moving into his previous position as coordinator.

As the director of education, Camlin will provide opportunities for diverse groups, including college students, university faculty, educators, tour groups, special visitors, donors, and the public by establishing and executing an educational program. He will also be responsible for increasing the knowledge and appreciation of the unique ecology and history of Hobcaw Barony among program participants while fostering a greater understanding of history and natural resource management.

“We are thrilled to announce the promotion of Zeb and Richard,” said George K. Chastain, executive director at Hobcaw Barony. “Both have been an integral part of our team over the years, and we look forward to seeing how their expertise in their new roles help shape the organization and its programs.”
