Land Trust hires marketing, outreach position

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan Community Land Trust has hired Claire Hobbs of Asheville, N.C., to handle the organization’s marketing, education, communication, education efforts, events and outreach work.

SCLT successfully raised a matching grant from the Homer A. & Mildred S. Scott Foundation, to fund the position for two years.

“SCLT has known for a number of years that we needed to increase our capacity in order to spend more time developing existing project opportunities,” said Colin Betzler, executive director of SCLT. “Bringing Claire on-board will allow us to do just that, especially given her background and experience, it’s a great fit for where SCLT is headed in the next few years.”

Hobbs was most recently employed with the Appalachian Trail Conservancy in West Virginia, a conservation advocacy nonprofit that manages the 2,185-mile Appalachian Trail.

Prior to that, Hobbs worked for the Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy, a community land trust based in Asheville, N.C.

Hobbs has earned degrees in English and Geology.
