Nov. 15, 2014 – Virginia (Eaton) Dautreuil (’00 B.S. in wildlife science) was named superintendent of the Manuel F. Correllus State Forest in Massachusetts. She is only the third person to hold this position.

The forest, which occupies a large area in the middle of Martha’s Vineyard, was originally created as a safe haven for the heath hen in 1908. Today it is used for recreation activities including biking, hiking, and horseback riding.

Dautreuil had previously completed surveys assessing freshwater stream health for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, researched the effects of hydroelectric dams on freshwater fisheries in Virginia, and worked as a field biologist for the Texas National Guard. She received a master’s degree from Texas State University, where she studied the effects of wildfires on aquatic life.

“At this point I’m looking with open eyes,” she said, “taking it step-by-step and hoping to learn about the forest and the island. I am looking forward to getting involved in the island community.”
