I love the permanence of our work. The land we protect today will have an impact on future generations forever.
To play a small part in saving land is important to me so that our community can have access to open space for recreation, spiritual growth, and activity that promotes health.
I am grateful to have the opportunity to play my part in cultivating a love for nature in the next generation of land stewards.
I enjoy walking on the beach and the sights and sounds of the gulf waters, after a day of computers, emails and cellphones. I want to help make open spaces available for people to disconnect from electronics and connect with nature.
I enjoy working for a mission that has so much ripple effect in the community. Saving land forever supports our economy, enables wildlife, gives us spectacular places to enjoy and nourishes the soul. I feel I have returned to a relationship with nature that was missing in my life.
I grew up here and am so lucky to have this fulfilling career. I know that the work we do today - saving the beautiful area of my childhood - will last forever!
I'm fortunate to have made my life's passion for protecting nature my profession. Growing up in the suburbs of Los Angeles, my love for nature and the outdoors was instilled in me from an early age through campouts in the Sierra and Appalachian mountains, family vacations to parks and wildlife refuges, exploring rivers by kayak, and a lifetime of walks along the beach. It is rewarding to work for an organization that ensures that future generations will be able to enjoy similar experiences.
It's such an exciting time to be a part of Conservation Foundation. There is such a growing sense throughout our community that this is the time to protect our special places before they are gone forever. Our work will have a long lasting impact and it's really neat to think that we can make a small difference right now.
