Open Lands Anniversary Issue

Spring/Summer 2015: 35 Years of Open Spaces, Places & Faces

This 35th anniversary issue of our Open Lands newsletter is a special edition featuring information about our 35th anniversary events and initiatives; interviews with the past presidents of the Land Trust; and the new Spring Gulch Meadows conservation project.

For this issue, we interviewed each past president and emeritus board member of the Land Trust and asked them the following four questions: Why did you want to be a part of the Land Trust? What project was the most special to you as board president and why? What impact has the Land Trust made in this valley? What three words would you use to describe the Land Trust? Each board member profile also features a photo of an iconic open space of the valley – visionary projects like the Walton Ranch, Hardeman Barns, Snake River Ranch, and Hansen and Mead Ranch, to name just a few of many.

We couldn’t fit everything from the interviews into the issue, so here are the full interviews:

We are grateful to photographer and Land Trust friend Anne Muller for contributing portait photography of many of the past presidents for this issue.
