A Familiar Face Comes to TILT
Kate Breheny joined the TILT team this January as the organization’s new Membership Coordinator. In this role, Kate will be the key liaison between the Land Trust and its 750 plus members. She will also be responsible for the coordination of the administrative matters for the organization, assisting with outreach and communications activities, and fielding and directing questions about TILT’s land conservation work.
Kate brings over fifteen years of experience coordinating and implementing environmental stewardship and education programs within the Golden Gate National Parks in San Francisco, CA and here along the St. Lawrence River.
During her time in San Francisco, she led education and volunteer programs at the Presidio Native Plant Nursery and oversaw the removal of invasive plants and the out-planting of native species in sensitive habitat areas with the Park Stewardship Program.
Most recently as Save The River’s Program Manager, she managed the organization’s wide range of community programs including its In the Schools and associated On the Water education programs, and the Riverkeeper Volunteer Monitoring, Common Tern Monitoring, Beach Watch and Shoal Marking Programs.
Kate also gained valuable fundraising experience as liason to the Macsherry Library Society, and event and exhibit coordination experience while working at the Thousand Islands Arts Center. “Kate’s extensive experience in the environmental field, combined with a natural passion for sharing her love for the River with others, made her a perfect fit for the position,” said Jake Tibbles, Executive Director.
“As a member of this great community it is an honor to be joining the team at TILT. I am especially excited to draw upon my past experiences to help the organization grow and assist with providing opportunities for its members to find personal connections with the vast diversity of conserved lands,” said Kate Breheny.
