Upper Saco Valley Land Trust Welcomes New Land Steward and Board Member
Conway, NH - In the last month, the Upper Saco Valley Land Trust (USVLT) welcomed a new Land Steward to their team and added a new member to their Board of Directors.
Greg Bjork is USVLT’s new Land Steward. His love of the northern forest began as a child exploring the woods around his home, pursuing a forestry degree at the University of New Hampshire, and continuing to follow a career path in forest ecology, land management, and conservation with the Maine Forest Service and Maine Audubon. An avid backpacker and Nordic skier, Greg has been recreating in and around the Mount Washington Valley for several decades and is excited to collaborate on current and future multi-use projects.
Tim Scott became a member of USVLT’s Board of Directors at their Annual Meeting in the beginning of May. Tim, a longtime resident of Jackson, New Hampshire, has been serving the fundraising profession continually in a variety of capacities since graduating from the University of Maine in 1977. During his career, Tim has consulted with or been employed by over 90 nonprofit organizations with an emphasis on long-term donor stewardship as well as conducting successful capital campaigns. In addition to his active consulting work with the Country Consulting Group, Inc., Tim also served for fifteen years as the Director of Development at Fryeburg Academy. Locally, he chaired the $1.3 million capital campaign for the North Conway Community Center in 2015, and worked with the MWV Rec Path, USVLT, Jackson Ski Touring, and the New England Ski Museum with their recent capital campaigns.
In addition to these two new members, Ann Bennett recently assumed the role of Vice President, and Meghan Moody assumed the role of Secretary.
