The Federal Point Historic Preservation Society will hold its monthly meeting on November 20

The Federal Point Historic Preservation Society will hold its monthly meeting on Monday, November, 20, 7:30 pm at the Federal Point History Center, 1121-A North Lake Park Blvd., adjacent to Carolina Beach Town Hall.
Our speaker this month will be who is the Director of Development for the North Carolina Coastal Land Trust.  The mission of the Coastal Land Trust is to enrich the coastal communities of North Carolina through conservation of natural areas and working landscapes, education, and the promotion of good land stewardship. In short, we save the lands you love along the North Carolina Coast.
Founded in 1992 on a shoestring and a dream, the Coastal Land Trust has become the largest land trust geographically in the state of North Carolina, serving 31 counties along the entire coastal plain. One of 24 land trusts in the state, our focus is saving and restoring special places in the coastal plain like barrier islands, nature parks and preserves, family farms, and longleaf pine forests.
Vann oversees marketing, fundraising, and outreach activities of the Coastal Land Trust, building relationships with our current members and educating the community about the importance of investing in coastal conservation. Vann joined the Land Trust in 2010, returning to Wilmington after 10 years as a non-profit executive in Bethesda, Maryland and Wilson, NC. A 1996 Graduate of UNC Wilmington, Vann grew up in Pender County, where he spent many days swimming and fishing on the Northeast Cape Fear River with his family and friends and many nights Scouting in the fields and forests of southeastern NC.  Vann’s wife and two kids keep him pretty busy outside of work, but he still finds time to play around on the guitar and attend concerts and festivals. He loves cooking, camping, and is an avid sports fan. His favorite NCCLT preserve is the BW Wells Savannah, located about 5 miles from his childhood home.
