Paden Legacy Fund

In honor of Peter’s decades of dedicated service on the Board of Trustees and as Executive Director, our community has come together to create the Paden Legacy Fund for Advancing Conservation and Education (PLACE Fund).

PLACE celebrates Peter’s enduring legacy by creating a coalition of dedicated land stewards, educating the next generation of conservationists, and calling upon all of us to do our part for Columbia County’s future. These goals reflect Peter’s vision for a future in which a thriving community of youth, volunteers, landowners and citizens, share a commitment to ensure the continued health and vitality of the land.
