Rebekah in 2019 greeting guests at at ForeverFest, our gala evening on the land at Finnriver Farm & Cidery
After more than three fantastic years with the Land Trust, our beloved Education and Engagement Manager Rebekah Korenowsky will be departing in early June to take on an exciting new role in online education and outreach with the Organic Seed Alliance, headquartered in Port Townsend. Please join us in congratulating her and wishing her the best of luck on her new adventure!
Rebekah joined Jefferson Land Trust in 2018, starting part time as the organization’s Administrative Assistant, then transitioning to the role of Engagement Coordinator in 2019, which then evolved into her current role of Education and Engagement Manager.
Throughout her time at the Land Trust, Rebekah stewarded community connections with events and educational programs, worked to ensure that the organization’s IT and communications systems functioned well, and facilitated the creation of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Task Force. With her bright spirit, caring attitude, and enthusiasm, she made genuine personal connections with many of the Land Trust’s partners, volunteers, and collaborators.
“Rebekah quickly proved herself to be a creative, dynamic, and valued member of the team,” said Richard Tucker, executive director of the Land Trust. “We will miss her greatly. However, we’re excited about this opportunity for professional growth and wish her every success in her new role.”
Rebekah had this to say: “I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunities, experiences, and connections I’ve had at the Land Trust and I’ll continue to support and cheer on local community conservation efforts.”
Rebekah’s last day at the Land Trust will be June 4; however, she’s agreed to use her Zoom skills to help out behind the scenes at FutureFest, on July 8, to make sure everything goes smoothly with our virtual gala.
Happy trails, Rebekah!
