It was an intense day of Planning for Your Land Trust’s Future with break-out sessions for Tactical Planning. Although it was very hot, many of us went on a short one mile hike, at lunch time, along the Appalachian Trail, which runs right next door to the Mather Training Center. Thanks to the Land Trust Alliance for all their help and support of Land Trusts across the United States.
Friends of PTLT enjoyed the Second Annual Cruise, to Tangiers Island!
Friends of PTLT had another wonderful excursion in August 2016 to visit Tangier Island aboard the North Star, with Captain Butch Cornelius. We ate fresh seafood for lunch on the Island. Then we had a chance to walk, rent a bicycle, or golf cart, and tour the Island on our own. There were shops to visit, a nice local museum, two ice cream shops, and a lovely beach to walk at the end of the Island. We are already making plans for next years’ trip. Please join us!
Four PTLT Board Members attended the June 14, 2016 workshop on Tact and Tactics for Managing a Big Conservation Easement Violation held at beautiful Accokeek Park!
It was a lovely day for an information-rich meeting/workshop sponsored by the Land Trust Alliance at Accokeek Park. Four PTLT Board Members attended the meeting, followed by a tour of the working farm. I believe the workshop strengthened our commitment towards our goal of achieving accreditation of our Land Trust. We have come a long way in the last couple of years, but there is still more to do!
