Compatible Lands Foundation Announces Dan Chapin as Director of Military Partnerships

July 19, 2022

 The Compatible Lands Foundation (CLF) is pleased to announce that Daniel Chapin has been selected as the Director of Military Partnerships,     effective July 11, 2022.

 CLF is a national nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote the conservation, restoration, and preservation of land and natural resources   and to foster compatible land uses among both public and private landowners.

As the Director of Military Partnerships for CLF, Chapin will oversee the organization’s implementation of the Readiness and Environmental Protection Integration (REPI) program at CLF partner military installations across the country. Chapin will lead CLF’s engagement with the Defense Department, the military services, and partner agencies, in addition to its local-level work with individual installations and landowners. The REPI program’s aim is to ensure that U.S. military installation operations, testing, and training are not impacted by off-base development.

Prior to joining CLF, Chapin worked for seventeen years in the Washington, DC-based Federal Affairs department of the Trust for Public Land, a national non-profit organization that works on land conservation and park projects. Dan had been TPL’s national REPI coordinator since 2016.

“We are excited to have Dan join the CLF team,” said Executive Director Joe Knott. “He brings significant experience to the organization on the implementation and funding of the REPI program, especially in the Nation’s Capital, and has a great passion for this important work that connects military readiness and land conservation.”
