Amy Henricksen, Jill Shriver and Lisa Schott welcome the opportunity to meet with anyone interested in learning more about conserving land within a five-mile radius of Kenyon College. Partnerships are key to our work and we are fortunate to work with many community partners and students and staff at the College who are committed to protecting local farmland and natural resources. We also appreciate the opportunity to work closely with student interns who help spread the word about our mission and provide creative content for the conservancy's blog, A Knox County Almanac.
Read more below about the staff and student interns.
