Land Conservancy names new director

The Land Conservancy of San Luis Obispo County, the leading nonprofit dedicated to the protection and restoration of local lands, announced the appointment of Kaila Dettman as Executive Director. Dettman will replace Bob Hill effective November 9th.

Dettman served as Deputy Director since April 2010 and is the first female executive director in the organization's 28-year history. Hill stepped down to accept a new position as the Natural Resources Manager for the City of San Luis Obispo.

As Deputy Director, Dettman oversaw the organization's fiscal budgeting and day-to-day operations, while managing the restoration program and its staff. "As the new Executive Director, I aim to continue the organization's tradition of collaborative partnerships and trusted leadership while enhancing our community presence. Looking ahead we will focus on what we do best: protecting the lands that provide homes for wildlife, nurturing our connection to the natural world, sustaining local food production, and supporting our recreation and tourism economy."

In December 2012, Hill assumes responsibilities as the new Natural Resources Manager for the City of San Luis Obispo. Hill is replacing Neil Havlik who retired from the position this past July.
