“The Land Trust protects land for perpetuity, provides outdoor recreation, and educates the surrounding community of the importance of conservation and environmental sustainability. We strive to be an example for other land trusts to follow.”
Originally from Farmington, Sue is proud to have made Lyme her home since 2015. She has an undergraduate degree in Natural Resource Management and Engineering from UConn where she focused on Wildlife Management, and a graduate degree in Environmental Communications from Ball State University where she focused on Sustainability and Documentary Filmmaking. As the Environmental Director for LLCT, Sue oversees stewardship of 110+ parcels across town, working hand-in-hand with volunteers, landowners, neighbors, and town officials, to ensure that LLCT continues to carry out its mission of land preservation and conservation in perpetuity. Her ultimate goal aims to reduce the stigma of easement management and ownership, and engage the community in conservation on a local level.
“For me both personally and professionally, the most important aspect of the Land Trust is that it continues to remain an active and exemplary land trust within our region, and that its programs and preserves are able to offer something for everyone.”
