Women of Weymouth Hear Preservationist
Land preservationist Dan Bell will present the Women of Weymouth program Monday, March 16.
Bell, executive director of the Sandhills Area Land Trust, is an experienced professional in land preservation and land trust management, having worked in conservation in North Carolina, California and Colorado over a 10-year career. He most recently worked with the Sequoia Riverlands Trust, a land trust working to protect the agricultural areas and foothills around Sequoia National Park.
During seven years with The Nature Conservancy's North Carolina chapter he directed TNC's project office in Wilmington, focusing on land preservation and stewardship in the longleaf pine savannas, pocosin and blackwater swamps of southeastern North Carolina.
Bell holds a law degree from North Carolina Central University School of Law in Durham and a bachelor's degree in forest sciences from Colorado State University, Fort Collins, Colo. He was born and grew up in Denver, Colo., and currently lives in Southern Pines.
The program will follow the 9:30 a.m. coffee and 10 a.m. business meeting.
"This will be an interesting and timely topic," says Pat Dawes. "I encourage members and their guests to attend."
