“The Mendocino Coast is part of my soul,” says Lawrence Turner, MLT’s outgoing Director of Conservation. “There’s nothing like going for a hike in the redwood forest.”
After working for the Mendocino Land Trust for three years, Larry is moving on.
Here are the Fort Bragg native’s poetic goodbyes and inspiring words:
Did you know that I can tell the difference between Big River, Noyo River and Ten Mile by the way they smell? There’s a distinct difference to them all. The only way I can describe it is variations of petrichor – the smell of freshly fallen rain. Something in the water is unique in each of those watersheds.
What did you like about working for the Land Trust?
So many good times – first off, the people are amazing. Dedicated. Good-humored. Wicked-smart and hardworking.
