New Board Officers Appointed
The Wilton Land Conservation Trust Elects a New Slate of Officers - 02.12.2021
At a meeting of the Wilton Land Conservation Trust Board of Trustees on February 12th, the Trustees elected new officers for a one-year term. They are Steve White President, Craig Johnson and Roger Valkenburgh Vice Presidents, Michael Foster Treasurer, and Mark Rice Secretary.
The outgoing president, Peter Gaboriault, led the organization through a period of significant growth over the last six years. Peter was instrumental in the acquisition and preservation of the 13-acre meadow at 183 Ridgefield Road and the construction of the small antique barn presently underway at 183. The WLCT membership was expanded during Peter's tenure, and the first Executive Director for the organization was hired. We thank Peter for all his efforts to make the Land Trust one of the leading organizations in Wilton.
The Wilton Land Conservation Trust was established in 1964 by a small group of citizens seeking to preserve Wilton's beautiful open spaces. It is a private, nonprofit 501c3 organization, entirely owned by its over 350 members and funded by those members and the generous support of the community. Today, the Land Trust oversees more than 110 properties totaling more than 830 acres of open space.
