Chandra Brown joked that she can’t handle three children.

“The Riverkeeper is my first baby,” she said. “And it’s time to give it up for adoption.”

Brown, who is pregnant with her second child, has been the Ogeechee Riverkeeper for the past 10 years. She’s stepping down from her post as riverkeeper and executive director sometime before her baby, a girl, is born in late April.

It’s time for the not-for-profit organization flourish under a new leader, Brown said. She plans to be involved in the organization as a volunteer, but will stay off the payroll, she added.

After her daughter is born, she said she’ll focus on her “geeky, technical” side for a few years.

“(I’ll) build on my science background,” she said.

The organization will split Brown’s job as the riverkeeper and executive director into two positions.
