Cindy Baysden has returned to the Open Land Trust as Executive Director. She opened the first office for the trust in 1992 and served as director until 2008. Cindy says, “I am thrilled to be back at the Trust because of the wonderful support from the community, and from the staff and Board of Trustees. I am proud of the role we have played for over 40 years in protecting the special landscape of the Lowcountry.
After a rigorous process of reviewing and revising policies and procedures, Beaufort County Open Land Trust will submit an application for accreditation to the Land Trust Alliance Accreditation Commission in early spring of 2015. As a part of that process we are giving the public an opportunity to comment on the work of the trust. Click here
