Wyoming Land Trust hires Interim Director and continues operations
by Wyoming Land Trust
March 16, 2013

The Wyoming Land Trust Board of Directors is happy to announce the hiring of a part-time Interim Director to oversee ongoing stewardship and monitoring activities. Mindi Crabb of Western Horizons Consulting will coordinate Sublette County efforts as the Board has recommitted to its primary mission of "working with private landowners to conserve Wyoming’s natural and agricultural resources". The organization will move forward with a lean administrative budget; Crabb operates out of a home office and will arrange meetings in town as needed. Board members are looking forward to continuing the important work of servicing existing conservation easements. Management of previous successful projects such as the Corridor Conservation Campaign (the wildlife friendly fencing initiative) and the Wyoming Nature Camps will be transitioned to other organizations.

The Wyoming Land Trust, based in Pinedale, Wyoming, facilitates conservation easement donations, purchases conservation easements, stewards conservation easements, educates the public about its work, and helps Wyoming families stay on their land. The WLT strives to make a positive difference in Wyoming, and its mission is to work with private landowners to conserve Wyoming's natural and agricultural resources.

The organization exists to serve landowners. It is not an advocacy group, and it is not an environmental group. The board and staff live and work in Wyoming and use voluntary, market-based tools like conservation easements to help landowners achieve their goals. The WLT envisions a Wyoming grounded in shared values, vibrant communities and western heritage. The WLT will build on Wyoming's values of honesty, integrity, hard work, fairness, conservatism, and common sense. Since its inception (as the Green River Valley Land Trust) in 2000, WLT has worked with more than 47 families to conserve nearly 30,000 acres of working ranchland, wildlife habitats and scenic views in Wyoming. This puts the organization in the top 100 land trusts in the country in terms of acreage conserved.
