Nobody likes a burnt fritter…
Conservation work is thrilling. Yet it can also be exhausting if you or your land trust staff, board members, and even volunteers are required to wear multiple hats; jump from one priority to the next; develop good relations with their members and donors and still remember to check on the easement on their drive home. How can you manage it all and still stay fresh?
Join us this month for a conversation with Henrietta Jordan, principal at Trailmarker Associates, to explore strategies for avoiding burnout and making what often seems an impossible job manageable and even enjoyable! Don't think you’re getting crispy? Join us to share your strategies with others.
