Talking Conservation in Saint Francisville

In November the Saint Francisville Area Foundation hosted a wonderful “Cocktails and Conversation” evening with Land Trust for Louisiana! The topic of the evening was land conservation in West Feliciana Parish. Our CEO, Dr. Jay Addison, talked about how residents can “control the destiny of your community by getting involved in land conservation.” Cindy Brown, our executive director, shared how we’re the only locally-based organization in the state doing this work – and that means we’re involved in a lot of exciting, diverse projects. Check out a video from the event to hear a bit more from Cindy about how we work with private landowners to conserve property all over the state.
