“Melody Harclerode will join another metropolitan area organization in March after three years of tremendous service to the Conservancy and Sandy Springs,” the Conservancy said in a press release. “We wish her the best with her next position.”

The Conservancy is now searching for a new executive director for leadership with local recreation projects, the release said. Some of the projects named include the Marsh Creek Trail, a pilot project that would connect Marsh Creek and the Sandy Springs Tennis Center for the city’s master plan of trails; Chattahoochee River access through the master trail plan and the regional Chattahoochee RiverLands project; and Sandy Springs park updates.

“Looking ahead, the Sandy Springs Conservancy seeks a new executive director with the vision, skills and leadership to build upon our successes,” the release said.
