After four fantastic years with the Land Trust, Chris Clark, our intrepid deputy director has accepted a position with Centrum as director of philanthropy. She’ll be leaving the Land Trust in early March.

We’re both sad to see her go and excited for her future and this next big career adventure.

The thing we’re most happy about? She’s staying in Port Townsend with her husband Roy and their friendly and boisterous dogs Bowie and Marley.

With their love of the land and wildlife, Chris and Roy plan to stay involved. In fact, Carrie Clendaniel, our preserve manager, will soon be putting them to work as volunteer Preserve Stewards!

We expect to launch our search for a new development director next month. Sarah Zablocki Axling has been appointed as interim development director and is working with Chris to ensure a smooth transition.
