The Wilton Land Conservation Trust Board of Trustees elected new officers for one-year terms on Friday, Feb. 12. They are Steve White as President, Craig Johnson and Roger Valkenburgh as Vice Presidents, Michael Foster as Treasurer, and Mark Rice as Secretary.
The outgoing president, Peter Gaboriault, led the organization through a period of significant growth over the last six years. Gaboriault was instrumental in the acquisition and preservation of the 13-acre meadow at 183 Ridgefield Rd. and the construction of the small antique barn presently underway at 183. During Gaboriault’s tenure the WLCT expanded its membership and hired the first executive director for the organization.
“We thank Peter for all his efforts to make the Land Trust one of the leading organizations in Wilton,” WLCT officials said.
The WLCT Annual Meeting will be held remotely on Wednesday, Feb. 24. In addition to the election of trustees for four-year terms commencing at the meeting and the conduct of customary business, the Land Trust’s Executive Director, David McCarthy, will present an overview of objectives for the coming year.
