PPLT has hired Donna Benson-Chan to lead the creation of PPLT's strategic plan. As PPLT is rebuilding and entering a mature stage, we identified the need to have a formal strategic plan to guide our work over the next few years, as well as help us focus on the work that is most important in our service area.
PPLT obtained a portion of the funds for this work through a grant from the Land Trust Alliance.
