Scott McCue Appointed Regional Director for Metro West

Press Release
December 20, 2021

LINCOLN—Mass Audubon has named Scott McCue as its new Metro West Regional Director, including oversight of the wildlife sanctuaries Broadmoor in Natick, Drumlin Farm in Lincoln, Habitat Education Center in Belmont, and Waseeka in Hopkinton.

McCue succeeds Renata Pomponi, who has been promoted to Senior Regional Director for the statewide conservation organization’s Metro Boston wildlife sanctuaries and programs.

He brings substantial experience in nonprofit management and education leadership to his role with Mass Audubon—for which nature-based education has been a core pillar.

McCue served as Chief Operating Officer and Dean of the Sposato Graduate School of Education until 2020 and previous to that position, founded and led a 6th-12th grade public school in Boston. Under his leadership, both educational institutions received national recognition. 

He has also worked with New England Forestry Foundation and is a graduate of Harvard College and Columbia University.

“We welcome Scott to Mass Audubon and look forward to his vision for advancing the value and importance of conservation and environmental education within our Metro West communities,” Pomponi said.

McCue said the conservation organization’s mission to connect people with nature “has never been more relevant or important to people’s lives. It certainly is to mine, and that relationship will continue to inform my commitment as I work with my new colleagues, Mass Audubon members, and visitors to our sanctuaries.”
