A local environmental group welcomed new members to its governing body and tapped a former mayor to take the helm.
The Bolsa Chica Land Trust, a group dedicated to preserving, restoring and acquiring land in the Bolsa Chica Wetlands, elected former Huntington Beach Mayor Connie Boardman on July 15 as president of its board of directors.
"I was very happy. Bolsa Chica has been one of my passions for 20 years," she said.
Boardman has served on the Land Trust's board for nearly 15 years and is the chairwoman of Cerritos College's biological sciences department, where she is a biology professor. She took over the position from outgoing President Paul Arms.
