Beth Poole (pronoun: she) is CLF’s Individual Giving Director. One of her biggest joys is exploring the National Conservation Lands with donors, supporters and friends on CLF trips. She believes getting out on the land and meeting Friends Grassroots Network partners is the very best way to understand and experience CLF's unique model and impact. Short of in person experiences, she loves hopping on the phone, zoom or hangouts to share stories and updates of CLF's work. Before joining CLF in 2014, Beth spent a decade working for non-profits in rural Alaska, focused on watershed health, community development and sustainable fisheries. Beth holds a Bachelors degree in English Literature from Trinity College in Hartford, Conn.
