Compatible Lands Foundation is pleased to announce that Leonard Jordan, former Acting Chief of the Natural Resources Conservation Service, has joined the CLF Board of Trustees.
Mr. Jordan has spent more than four decades working to conserve our nation’s natural resources and working lands. As the Acting Chief of the United States Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), he oversaw the agency’s programs to preserve the country’s natural resources and improve our agricultural sustainability through voluntary, private-land conservation.
“I’ve always had a passion for working with people, organizations and groups to advance conservation on the land. I enjoyed a 42 year career with NRCS that afforded me the opportunity to have an impact on protecting and sustaining our most value natural resources,” says Mr. Jordan. “Having retired a year ago, I’m truly excited to join an organization where I can continue to pursue my passion of collaborating to advance conservation on the land. I am honored!”
Having worked across the nation and through his different roles at the NRCS, Mr. Jordan has collaborated with a wide variety of stakeholders including government agencies, non-profit organizations and private citizens.
“CLF is so fortunate to have Leonard Jordan join the Board of Trustees,” says Robert Gregory, Executive Director of Compatible Lands Foundation. “Leonard approaches issues creatively and works to build bridges. This, along with his vast knowledge and experience, will help to advance the mission of CLF and expand its impact.”
Founded in 2009, the mission of Compatible Lands Foundation is to promote the conservation, restoration, and preservation of land and natural resources and to foster compatible land uses among both private and public landowners.
