Conservation Director Attends Rally

Conservation Director Rose GravesNWT Conservation Director Rose Graves was one of 1,400 conservation leaders who attended Rally 2011: The National Land Conservation Conference in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on October 13-16. Rose was excited to attend her first Rally and to learn the “ins and outs” of conservation easements from land trust experts. “It was great to network among the land trust community and to meet and get ideas from people who have been doing this work for a very long time,” said Rose. The Northeast Wilderness Trust received scholarship funds to help cover Rose’s registration fees.

The theme of this year’s Rally was “Connecting Communities for the Future of Conservation,” and Rose noted that the keynote by Will Allen, founder of Growing Power, was particularly inspiring. She also noted that when one orders a Bloody Mary in Milwaukee, it comes with cheese in it–and according to Rose, this is good.  Well then… thanks for the report, Rose!
