Suzan Bellincampi is new Felix Neck director
Mass Audubon this week announced that Suzan Bellincampi of Vineyard Haven will be the new director of Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary in Oak Bluffs.
She will have big shoes to fill. Ms. Bellincampi takes over for Gus Ben David, who retired last December after 36 years at the helm of the 350-acre Audubon property.
Ms. Bellincampi is a familiar face to many Islanders. For the last seven years she has worked for The Trustees of Reservations developing and leading education programs on Martha's Vineyard, as well as in other parts of Massachusetts.

Ms. Bellincampi begins her new job officially on June 5, though she has already begun helping out at Felix Neck.
There are several events planned throughout the summer to give Vineyarders the opportunity to meet Ms. Bellincampi.
The first get-together will be Sunday, June 25, from noon until 2 pm, when members of the public are invited to bring a picnic and join Ms. Bellincampi for lunch at Felix Neck.
Ms. Bellincampi has a long history of working to protect the environment, according to a press release. For the past 15 years she has worked as a naturalist, environmental educator, and program director.
The Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary, on the shore of Sengekontacket Pond in Oak Bluffs, hosts a variety of year-round educational programs and a popular summer camp.
