Mike Giles – Conservation

The Brunswick Town Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution held their November 10th meeting at the United Methodist Church in Southport, NC. Mike Giles, a coastal advocate for the North Carolina Coastal Federation, one of NC’s largest coastal non-profit conservation organizations was the guest speaker. Mike joined the staff in May 2006. He is a North Carolina Native and prior to joining the Federation, he served as the open-space land manager for Durham County for five years. Mike has extensive stewardship, enforcement and advocacy experience gathered form positions with the National Park Service and the Army Corp of Engineers, as well as chief park ranger for Mecklenburg County. He studied wildlife management at N. C. State University, which included additional research and course work in coastal ecology. Mike monitors the Southeast Region from the Wrightsville Beach regional office. Mike stressed a need for citizens to get involved in the decisions the government makes on their behalf. Without citizen action our coast will be at risk from improper decisions on a variety of critical issues facing our coast.
The North Carolina Coastal Federation mission is to provide citizens and groups with the assistance needed to take an active role in the stewardship of North Carolina’s coastal water quality and natural resources. For more information visit their website
