Helms is new superintendent at Carolina Beach State Park

Monday, October 31st, 2011

RALEIGH, NC (NEWS RELEASE) — Chris Helms, a veteran park superintendent and ranger, has been named as superintendent of Carolina Beach State Park in New Hanover County, according to the N.C. Division of Parks and Recreation.

Helms succeeds Terri Taylor, who retired earlier this year.

A superintendent is the chief of operations and administration at a state park or state recreation area with wide-ranging responsibilities for staffing, training, law enforcement, visitor services, natural resource protection and environmental education.

Helms has been superintendent of Lake Waccamaw State Park in Columbus County since 2004. A native of Jacksonville, Helms attended White Oak High School and is a 1991 graduate of the University of North Carolina-Wilmington with a bachelor’s degree in parks and recreation management. He served one year as a seasonal ranger at Fort Macon State Park before being hired as a ranger at Jones Lake State Park in 1991, and he joined the staff at Weymouth Woods State Nature Preserve in 1997. He holds certifications in environmental education, prescribed burning and advanced law enforcement.

“Chris brings with him excellent experience in all phases of state park management as well as a love and deep knowledge of coastal North Carolina,” said Lewis Ledford, state parks director. “That will serve him well considering Carolina Beach State Park’s contributions as both a valuable natural resource and a tourism destination in that community.”
