Special to the Enterprise
Ashby Nix is moving inland from her job on Sapelo Island to become the new Satilla riverkeeper.
Nix, 29, holds a master’s degree in environmental science and wetland studies from LSU. She has worked for a year on Sapelo with Georgia Coastal Ecosystems LTR. She takes up her new job on Tuesday and is eager to put her skills to work.
“I’m fascinated by nature,” she said via cellphone on her daily commute from Sapelo. “I love being outside learning about the neat things in the world.”
