Marilyn Murphy DuBois
Ms. DuBois was born and raised in New Jersey, coming to New York after receiving a BS in physics at Ohio University and continuing graduate studies at Union College. She has been a long-time advocate for protection of the environment, promoting energy conservation and renewable resources, public health protection and historic preservation. She has devoted much of her 55 year career to these causes, including positions as the Executive Director and Lobbyist for the Environmental Planning Lobby, Conservation Director of the Sierra Club Atlantic Chapter, Deputy Director of the NYS Assembly Legislative Commission on Science and Technology, Chief of the DEC Pesticide Management Bureau, and the NYS Assembly Commissions on Solid Waste Management and Toxic Substances/ Hazardous Wastes. She retired at the end of 2014, but not from environmental activism. She and her family have hiked, skied, camped, sailed, kayaked and vacationed in the Adirondacks for most of their lives. Her passion for preserving and protecting this amazing region is now manifest through her participation on the PROTECT Board.
