Get to know this year’s Volunteer of the Year: Nelwyn McInnis

Congratulations to our Volunteer of the Year, Nelwyn McInnis!

Approximately ten years ago, our founders approached The Nature Conservancy for help in protecting a stretch of land along the Tangipahoa River. We were immediately connected with Nelwyn McInnis, the Mitigation Program Manager for The Nature Conservancy. Based out of Baton Rouge, Ms. McInnis has been instrumental in guiding our organization over the past decade.

Putting in her free time, sharing her expertise, and participating in our events,
we would not be who we are today without dedicated volunteers and members like Nelwyn McInnis. Her on-going support as an Advisor and her many hours spent on each acquisition continues to be an irreplaceable service. Thank you, Nelwyn!
