We are delighted to share the news that Connie Prickett, of Wilmington, NY, has been named director of communications for the Adirondack Land Trust.

Connie has worked primarily in conservation for the past 25 years, communicating about the benefits of clean water, intact forests and local farms, and advocating for resources to protect them. She worked previously as vice president of communications and strategic initiatives for Adirondack Foundation and director of communications and community engagement for The Nature Conservancy’s Adirondack Chapter. She also led communications and supported fundraising efforts with the Adirondack Land Trust 1999–2017.

“I love focusing on relationships between land protection, stewardship, outdoor recreation, and community wellness and identity. Everything is tied together, and I’m thrilled to rejoin the land trust team to support conservation across our vast landscape and within our communities,” Connie says.
