Growing & flourishing

A message from Lisa Woolford, Executive Director

Thank you for caring about the natural world and the future of this precious resource in our region. Serving as BLisa at EDWDACT’s director of land preservation for the past three years, I have appreciated the opportunities I’ve had to preserve everything from a rare gravel hill prairie and fen wetland to the picturesque country roads, horse trails, and waterways that are so vital to our quality of life.  bob-lee-jan-nNature brings people together and rejuvenates humanity like nothing else. Working together, we can make a difference for generations to come. If you have not attended a BACT restoration day or concert to fund conservation, please make 2014 your year to join us. Stepping up to become BACT’s new executive director with the retirement of our previous director, I am thrilled to be in a position where I can nurture positive partnerships and hope you will..
