Land Trust Thanks Departing Board Members

Jan 06, 2022
The Deschutes Land Trust would like to thank our board members who completed their terms at the end of 2021.


As we begin 2022, the Land Trust would like to bid a fond farewell to our board members who completed their terms at the end of 2021--Mike Cutting, Gary "Gus" Gustafson, and Glenn Willard. Their dedication, time, and passion was immeasurable to our success, and we thank them for their years of service.

Mike Cutting joined the Board in 2013 and completed two terms. He served as the Board Treasurer from 2015-2021. Mike continues to be an active member of the finance committee. As a former real estate broker, Mike provided the Land Trust with financial acumen and a helpful perspective. We’ll greatly miss Mike's insightful comments and questions that he brought to every conversation.



Gary "Gus" Gustafson joined the Board in 2017. He was an active member of the fundraising and board development committees and will continue to serve on the fundraising committee. In addition, Gus volunteers as a leader for the Land Trust's Walks + Hikes program, as well as helping with our wildlife cameras. Gus' proactive approach, insight, and love of wildlife will be missed!



Glenn Willard joined the Board in 2013 and served as Board President from 2019-2021. He was an active member of the fundraising, board development, and finance committees. As a member of the Conservation Alliance and an outdoor industry professional, Glenn brought his business skills and love of outdoor recreation to the Board. We'll miss Glenn's quick smile, optimism, and willingness to always pitch in to help out.



Thank you Mike, Gus, and Glenn for your many accomplishments while on the Board of Directors of the Deschutes Land Trust!
