John Stewart and Anne Chadwick have accepted appointments to the Truckee Donner Land Trust (Land Trust) Advisory Council.

Says Land Trust President Thomas Van Berkem, “We are fortunate to bring these talented, conservation-minded leaders onto the Advisory Council and are especially appreciative of their expertise and insights as well on the Stewardship Committee.”

Stewart is a native Californian, a retired U.S. Army Major General with 32 years of service and an active outdoorsman who shares his perspective on trail signage and recreational opportunities with the Land Trust. “I look forward to contributing to the wonderful work being accomplished by the Land Trust in managing land in this lovely part of our great nation for ourselves and for future generations,” says Stewart.

Chadwick, a writer and first class photographer who uses her camera for monitoring easements and for beautiful photos that enhance the Land Trust newsletter says, "The Land Trust provides such an effective vehicle to preserve the wild and rugged nature of our region. It's critical that we build on our progress and maintain key partnerships that will protect the incredible resources surrounding us. I am truly honored to serve on the Advisory Council.”
