The new Executive Director at the Little Traverse Conservancy (LTC), Kieran Fleming has grown into this position from within the organization. With a background in wildlife ecology and a deep appreciation for land conservation, Fleming has worked in several different positions at LTC over the past 19 years. In his most recent role, Kieran was chief operating officer (COO) for LTC.
In this video, Fleming describes some of the challenges climate change and invasive pests present to the management of the Conservancy’s preserves and forest reserves. He says, LTC needs to step on the gas and work to increase the acreage of lands conserved during this time of increasingly rapid change. The more we can conserve, Fleming says, the more choices we and future generations will have.
