    In this unique role as community police officer for the river, Lee is part law en-
forcer and part administrator, recently telling a reporter, “I’m a hybrid.” His duties

management plan for the land, networking with regional agencies with ties to the
rivers in a five-county area, and coordi-

the land. The policing aspect involves
watching for illegal tree cutting by ad-
