CCF Hires first Full time Executive Director/ Land Steward

CCF is pleased to announce the hiring of our first full time employee.  Our current land steward Matt Cannon will start work as our first Executive Director on August 8, becoming a full time employee in mid September.  Until that time you can still find Matt working with HCT one or two days per week as he completes projects he began there. “HCT is proud of Matt Cannon for his outstanding work with us and for his aspirations to lead the Chatham Conservation Foundation (CCF) as its first executive director. Several years ago, he started as an AmeriCorps member with HCT and then over time rose to Director of Land Stewardship for both HCT and CCF, demonstrating a productive cross-border partnership between the two land trusts. We look forward to collaborating with Matt in his new role at CCF as both land trusts continue to cooperate on land preservation projects that protect shared natural resources,” said Michael Lach, HCT executive director.

This position was able to be created thanks to a generous grant from Tim and Lynne Weller.
