WPC announces Leadership Transition

After serving on the Waveny Park Conservancy for six years and as Chairman of the Board for the last two and a half years, Caroline Garrity is stepping down and transitioning leadership to Stephen Boeschenstein. Caroline led development of a new Five-Year Master Plan for Waveny Park and oversaw major projects including the Waveny House Forecourt Replanting, Parterre Garden Installation, Anderson Pond Renewal and Jeniam Wildflower Meadow Development. The Board is extremely grateful for Caroline’s leadership and energy in making Waveny Park a place of scenic beauty and passive enjoyment for all New Canaanites. Her efforts in guiding the Conservancy through the Covid period with a dramatic increase in public visitation have been extraordinary.

Stephen Boeschenstein, the Waveny Park Conservancy Treasurer, will step in as Chair with the full support of the  Board going forward. Stephen brings a full kit of organizational and leadership skills to the position and is excited to ensure that Waveny Park thrives in perpetuity.
