Welcome Back!

We would like to give a warm welcome back to an old friend of the land trust, Cindy Baysden. She has returned to her position she left 6 years ago, Executive director. While we are sad to see a great conservationist like Patty Kennedy leave. We are excited about what this next year will bring.

We are excited to announce….

In the near future the Beaufort County Open Land Trust will be going through an accreditation process with the Land Trust Alliance. Part of that process is giving the public an opportunity to give their thoughts on the Land Trust, good or bad. Click here to read the formal announcement and to find out where you can send your feedback.
