The Next Generation of Conservation Leaders

Last month we said goodbye to Katharine Lange, CLCC’s first Sandy Breslin Conservation Fellow, as she moved on to work for Massachusetts Rivers Alliance as its new Policy Specialist.

In her two years working with CLCC, Katharine has been the ultimate team player—assisting with advocacy efforts, elevating CLCC’s communications and social media presence, providing technical support to land trusts, presenting at our annual conference, and much more.

As we send our best wishes to Katharine, CLCC is excited to welcome Yaw Owusu Darko. Yaw comes to us through UCONN’s Master of Public Administration program, and he has hit the ground running—"zooming” with us around the state as part of our Conservation Conversations program; applying his creative writing and editing skills to CLCC communications; and assisting with preparations for our virtual conference. (Read more about Yaw below.)

Sandy Breslin (1954-2017) was a founding member of CLCC who made enduring contributions to land conservation, the environment, and politics—in her hometown of Bethany, and throughout the State and country.

We are proud to offer this fellowship in Sandy’s name to provide this opportunity to the next generation of conservation leaders.
