Are you or someone you know passionate about land conservation and interested in joining a board?
The Brooklyn Queens Land Trust is looking for help to find individuals to serve on the Board of Directors. Experience and specific skills such as property management, community organizing, accounting, promotions and marketing, finance or banking, environmental science, property law, horticulture and or fundraising and grant-writing would be valuable assets for the Board.
BQLT is a non-profit organization determined to preserve and conserve green space in Brooklyn and Queens, and build communities in and around those spaces. Our mission is to inspire and educate people about being environmentally responsive gardeners. The organization owns 35 gardens, and leases one additional garden, which are all permanently protected in perpetuity, to be used by the public for generations to come.
Being one of the largest urban land trusts in the United States, to continue to grow and prosper, we are always looking for individuals who can help BQLT reach higher, help us lead and inspire people in and around our gardens and beyond, and bring innovative strategies to help us improve and better serve our communities. Please forward this email to anyone you think would be interested! The new board members are voted in at our Annual Membership Meeting which is coming up on April 6, 2019; save the date!
