Philip Gray, President
Michael Northridge, Vice President for Outreach

Mike has a law degree from Georgetown University and works in the environmental field for the federal government. He is a Potomac resident and enjoys walking his dog along the Creek and its tributaries. (He always cleans up after his pet!) Mike is aiming to increase participation by local schools (public and private), places of worship, and HOAs/citizens associations in FOCJC's efforts. Also, as an Eagle Scout, he is especially interested in getting local Scouts involved.
Dan Kulpinski, Treasurer

Dan is a writer and editor who enjoys hiking the Cabin John Trail. After writing an article about the Cabin John watershed for the Audubon Naturalist News, he became inspired to help reduce stormwater runoff and improve the creek's health. In addition to managing FoCJC's money, he also produces its e-newsletter.
Peter Bross, Secretary
Burr Gray, Director
Roy Seidenstein, Director

Roy has a BA in Biology & Environmental Studies, and has been a practicing environmental lawyer for almost 30 years. In addition, to leading FOCJC's water quality monitoring program, Roy was one of two co-founders of the group in 1999, and has helped organize trash-cleanups and other activities ever since.
Eric Strassler, Director
Don Libes, Director

Don has degrees in computer science and math from Rutgers and the University of Rochester. Don works as a computer scientist for the federal government when he is not out on the trails. Don brings balance to the Board by representing the average citizen who wants to do the right thing despite a complete lack of any formal education in any environmental sciences. Don also maintains FOCJC's website and social networking sites.
