The Adirondack Land Trust Internship for the Future of the Adirondacks 

Founded in 2020 by Barbara Glaser and The Trust from Clarence A. Petty

Over three decades, renowned conservationists Barbara Glaser and Clarence Petty (1905–2009) teamed up to champion paid internship opportunities for young people at the Adirondack Chapter of The Nature Conservancy and the Adirondack Council. 

In 2020, Clarence’s son Ed joined with Barbara to create a third internship, the Adirondack Land Trust Internship for the Future of the Adirondacks. 

Barbara and Ed are longtime friends, and so were Barbara and Clarence. We can’t thank them enough for giving the land trust and the Adirondacks the gift of young conservationists, and we can’t think of a better investment in our collective future. (Watch a brief video about Barbara, Ed and Clarence here.)

In 2020, Jess Grant (pictured) became the first Adirondack Land Trust Intern for the Future of the Adirondacks.
