We’re all pulling together to achieve our common mission – protecting and stewarding the regions natural, scenic and iconic farmlands for all future generations and all of our projects require a tremendous amount of behind the scenes work right here in our offices on N Long Lake Rd. The integrity of the conservancy is paramount to our success in protecting land, and excellence in relationship management, data entry, database management and other office administration tasks is key.
