Dear SRT Family,
As we move closer to a new year, the leaves of the sycamores in the rare alluvial woodland at Homer Ranch Preserve have turned a deep rust-brown. On a national level, we are preparing for a new President and Vice President. And with the beginning of vaccine distribution, we look forward to a time when we will be able to safely gather again with family and friends.
Sequoia Riverlands Trust is also entering a season of transition. So many challenges lie ahead, including groundwater and climate issues, shifting land use policies, and the need to raise the next generation of naturalists and farmers. SRT has assessed its leadership needs as we prepare to meet these challenges.
To help move us toward our vision, the SRT Board has named Scott Spear as Acting Executive Director. Scott has a 20-year history with SRT, which, combined with his experience as a farmer, uniquely positions him as a bridge to our future leadership. As the founding chairman of SRT’s Board, Scott was instrumental in the creation of our organization. As Acting Executive Director, he will work closely with a team of senior staff and the Board of Directors as SRT continues its critical conservation, education, policy, and land management work.
We begin the search for a new Executive Director from a place of strength and stability, firmly rooted in our mission to inspire love and lasting protection for important lands. We are committed to our vision of a future where productive farmland and healthy natural systems are protected to generate community vitality and economic prosperity.
SRT is so grateful for the strong support of our volunteers, staff, ambassadors, and donors. Your support has made us the robust and vital land trust we are today, and your continuing commitment will ensure the future of SRT’s work. Our preserves at Kaweah Oaks, Homer Ranch, and Dry Creek are open to the public, and we encourage you to visit and enjoy the beauty and respite of nature in this holiday season. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope to see you outside in 2021!
