Good Bye and Good Luck, Hannah!
I am thankful for 5 beautiful years with the conservancy, and grateful for everything Leo taught me about honoring and protecting the land. I can’t wait to come back as a volunteer and do some trail work or pull some invasive plants, I will always feel tied to this precious land.Thanks guys and happy trails!• Hannah Walchak, Former Conservancy Director
My five words about working and becoming friends with Hannah—curious, energetic, compassionate, intrepid, smart.Hannah came on board during a time of rapid expansion of Conservancy managed properties and was instrumental in upping our game to ensure all our land was properly stewarded. She leaves a fine legacy and I wish her all the best in her future endeavors.• Leonard Wittwer, Escondido Creek Conservancy Board President
“Hannah is a perennial champion of wildlands, and the Conservancy’s properties have flourished under her care. When she wasn’t in the field, she always brought the sunshine into the office with her.”
• Simon Breen, Education Director
I don’t know that I’ve ever seen Hannah without a smile, even during a long Zoom meeting! Her positivity was infectious and I was inspired by her hands-on approach to giving back to nature.
