A word from

OUR INTERIM EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

We are living in a new era. Both our world and our local environment are changing rapidly and in unforeseen ways. The effects of extreme weather systems, pressure from increasing development, and unregulated exploitation of precious and unrenewable resources, are all threats to our way of life and to the environment that we treasure in our region.

The GLLT has been working for over a quarter century to identify natural areas that can be protected in order to maintain a strong and viable ecosystem. One that preserves native wildlife habitat, safeguards air and water quality, and nurtures our creative spirit while keeping large areas open to public access and traditional use. We steward those properties according to standards and practices defined by the Land Trust Alliance and create education and outreach programs to inform our friends and neighbors of the fascinating and beautiful environment we all share.

The Greater Lovell Land Trust is fortunate to have had Tom Henderson as Executive Director over the last 15 years. With Tom’s unexpected passing, we lost a valued member of our community, but we kept our commitment to the land and our momentum for future. It may be difficult to find ways to make a meaningful impact on the global environment, but it is possible to find ways that we can keep the wonders and delights of our region as a legacy for the future. As the costs for continuing the planning for and stewardship of the natural world rise in this new era, we ask that you consider joining us as a volunteer, and making a donation to our annual fund for this important work.
