There is a new executive director at the Killbuck Watershed Land Trust, and for the first time in the non-profit’s 21-year history, the person serving in that role will not be doing so as a volunteer.  Tate Emerson, who officially took over the reigns earlier this month, says he hopes, in his new role, to be able to protect agricultural land, prevent urban sprawl and make healthy food more readily available.  The land trust is a local conservation organization that helps farms preserve their land for agricultural or wildlife purposes.  It currently protects more than 10,000 acres of land in Wayne, Holmes, Ashland and several other nearby counties.
