Lula Lake Land Trust has launched the Conservation Ambassador Program. Spearheaded by Matthew Hubbard, the new director of Development and Communications, this program will focus on teaching the conservation efforts of Lula Lake Land Trust.
"It is our duty to preserve the wonders around us," Mr. Hubbard states. "It is important to teach conservation initiatives to the stewards of tomorrow. Together, we will work toward a better understanding of conservation."
"A group of 25 esteemed members of the Chattanooga community will meet monthly to discuss and learn the importance of conservation and the effect it has on our community. This program also showcases how LLLT works with other conservation partners and will visit with other organizations, such as Reflection Riding Arboretum and Nature Center, Tennessee River Gorge Trust and Lookout Mountain Conservancy. Members of the Conservation Ambassador program are affiliated with notable organizations and businesses in Chattanooga, such as Papercut Interactive, Conversant Group, Rock/Creek and Miller & Martin," officials said.
Miles Huff, community relations specialist at Unum, has been selected to represent the Ambassadors at LLLT board meetings and affairs.
