Farewell Becca

Assistant Director, Becca Washburn, accepts position with the Land Trust Alliance

Assistant Director, Becca Washburn, has accepted a position with the Land Trust Alliance.  She will be their new Northeast Conservation Manager, focusing on advancing the all-volunteer land trust community in New England and working on organizational development with land trusts that have the potential for greater conservation impact. 

Becca characterizes her decision to move on from SLT as bittersweet.  “I will miss working directly with all of the wonderful people that make up Stowe’s community, but I look forward to sharing with other land trusts throughout New England the valuable experience and successes we have had here at Stowe Land Trust.”

Her last day was February 21st, and already the wheels have been set in motion to find a replacement.  Executive Director, Caitrin Maloney sees this as an opportunity to rethink SLT’s current organizational structure, “We plan to focus even more attention on conservation and stewardship.  This new structure will streamline our work, allowing us to be more efficient and effective moving forward.” 

“We’re sad to see Becca go.  At the same time we’re excited to have cultivated another outstanding professional in the conservation arena, and we’re looking forward to working with Becca in her new role at the Land Trust Alliance.”
