I'm excited to continue to help PHLT in our quest to help preserve nature. One of the most exciting aspects of serving on the board is how our nature spaces have such positive impact people. We are helping to preserve some of our natural resources for a better future for all to enjoy. We have a great board of such passion and talent in land preservation. I'm also very excited to see how some of our new trails at GRNP will continue to allow people to enjoy nature. We also are entering a very exciting time with our new offices to be shared with BWA at the brand new FGNP facility.

I'm honored to have been nominated and voted to be the president of PHLT and I look forward in helping serve our community by working with such great group of people at PHLT.
