Spring is a time for fresh faces, natural growth, and renewed energy. With your help and enthusiasm, Colorado Headwaters Land Trust (CHLT) has embraced the spring by welcoming three new Board members, promoting a new Executive Director, and working with Grand County’s Open Lands, Rivers, and Trails fund to work on protecting more of Grand County!
We are proud to welcome Steve Fitzgerald, Melinda McWilliams, and David Doty onto the Board of Directors. Steve is a longtime visitor and resident of Grand County, an avid outdoorsman, and brings his decades-long experience in corporate human resources to CHLT. Melinda moved to Grand County 17 years ago after retiring from the US Forest Service and is a community leader in the Fraser Valley. She continues to use her experience as a landscape architect, outdoorswoman, and gardener to beautify Grand County! David also has a long history in Grand County and enjoys being active outside with his family, when he’s not traveling around the country with the Boy Scouts or for his work in marketing and food services.
In March the Board voted to promote Jeremy from Program Director to Executive Director. He is dedicated to collaborative conservation and focuses on open communication with landowners and community members. While most of his work is in the office, he also looks forward to spending more time around the county! We are thrilled to have Jeremy leading our team and look forward to a bright future of protecting Grand County’s natural resources.
