Williamstown Rural Lands (WRL) is a non-profit, member-supported land conservation trust. It was founded in 1986 to address the loss of open space and public access, the disappearance of family farms in the Williamstown area, and to encourage responsible development. WRL conserves and promotes a diversity of natural habitats and working landscapes in our region for the benefit of biodiversity, our communities, and future generations.
Robin Sears is the executive director of Williamstown Rural Lands. She came to the position in early 2022 after decades of working as a research scientist in the international sphere on topics related to natural resource-based rural livelihoods, forest management, and forest policy. Robin holds a doctorate in ecology and a master's in forestry, and is happiest when working at the interface of people and the landscape.
