Charov has been working in science education and environmental preservation for a decade. From 2008-2012, he directed institutional advancement Bette Midler’s New York Restoration Project (NYRP), a non-profit organization dedicated to reclaiming and restoring New York City parks, community gardens, and open space. He was responsible for managing more than 90 corporate, foundation, government, individual, and partner relationships that helped raise $10 million annually for operations and programs. He also raised funds for MillionTreesNYC, a $28 million citywide capital campaign and the nation’s largest and most ambitious urban forestry program.
Prior to his position at NYRP, Charov was the senior grants manager for the New York Hall of Science in Queens, the city’s hands-on science museum and research center. He holds a philosophy degree from Stanford University and spent far too much time performing improv comedy in the San Francisco Bay Area.
As chairman of the Wells Reserve and president of Laudholm Trust, Charov directs marketing and private fundraising for the Wells Reserve, interacting with donors and business partners, increasing membership, evangelizing the mission of the Reserve, working with the Wells Reserve staff, and overseeing the Trust’s signature events such as the Laudholm Nature Crafts Festival, Punkinfiddle, and music concerts.
A husband and father of two young boys, Charov is no stranger to Maine. He spent his childhood summers exploring the tide pools, pines, and breakwaters of Peaks Island in Casco Bay.
What is your choice of mascot for Wells Reserve and why?
The Northern Mockingbird, my first feathered friend here at the Reserve, continually attempting to make itself known in MANY different ways.
What is your favorite place at Wells Reserve?
The bench at the top of the hill near the flagpole — the best long view there is, especially for someone who'd been staring at the canyons of New York City for too many years
