Allison Tillett Joins New River Land Trust

We’re very pleased to welcome Allison Tillett to our team as our new Conservation Outreach Coordinator.

Allison’s interest in conservation evolved from an affection for the natural world, appreciation for our delicate ecosystems, and enthusiasm for bird watching. At Virginia Commonwealth University she studied wetland science, restoration ecology and environmental policy, and graduated with her Master’s degree in Environmental Studies in December 2016. Allison earned her Bachelor’s of Arts in Religious Studies at Radford in 2009. She recently returned to settle down in the New River Valley to enjoy the mountains, the New River, and the welcoming people in the area.

Allison is excited to facilitate the protection of some of Virginia’s most beautiful and treasured landscapes, and further inspire appreciation of our natural resources.
