Avery Hellman, Director, Point Blue Board
For me, working lands represent the greatest opportunity for a shift towards better conservation, and that’s why Point Blue’s working lands programs make me the most excited. It’s amazing to me that Point Blue has transcended typical boundaries in conservation to collaborate with farmers and ranchers, ensuring that this important work gets done. I wanted to be involved in Point Blue because I found hope as well as integrity in the work they do. Their mission aligned deeply with the environmental work I find to be of the utmost importance, but I also see that they focus on being effective. What I love about Point Blue is that they bring out the best in me as a rancher and as a board member.
