Neil Upmeyer Internship

In Neil Upmeyer’s memory, D&R Greenway Land Trust has established The Neil Upmeyer Internship in Land Preservation & Stewardship at the Johnson Education Center. Spearheaded by his good friend Jim Amon and funded by the generosity of Neil’s friends and colleagues, the Upmeyer Internship is made available to graduate and undergraduate college students. Under the guidance of a D&R Greenway advisor, the intern will dedicate 100 hours  or more to assisting stewardship staff with conservation practices. The intern receives a stipend and an invitation to attend all educational programs at the Johnson Education Center for a year.

This living legacy creates the next generation of land preservationists to follow in Neil’s footsteps. Every Upmeyer intern is given an experience that we hope will transfer Neil Upmeyer’s generosity, dedication, insight, and leadership to a new generation of environmental leaders.

Charles Evans Conservation Leader

Charles Evans was a visionary and an entrepreneur – he saw opportunity and understood its significance and the benefits that could be created from it. His first career was in the fashion industry, where he parlayed an elegant approach to styling women’s sportswear with a clean, classic menswear look into the Evan-Picone label. Charles Evans was also a contemplative man who found his own renewal in nature. He appreciated the importance of preserving and caring for the land for the benefit of future generations. He would have recognized the need to encourage the next generation of environmental leaders by providing an opportunity for them to gain hands-on experience in conservation.

In his honor, the Charles Evans Foundation has presented an endowment to D&R Greenway Land Trust to fund the Charles Evans Future Conservation Leader Awards. Each year, D&R Greenway will grant one or more Conservation Leader Awards to support internships for selected undergraduate or graduate students with a strong interest in land preservation and stewardship or in related fields such as development, communications or nonprofit management.

Linda Munson, President of the Charles Evans Foundation explained, “Charles believed in empowering talent – through education, mentoring and training. D&R Greenway is an outstanding organization; there is none better able to prepare students to become environmental professionals. It was a logical step to create the Charles Evans Future Conservation Leader Awards for D&R Greenway to administer. I believe the results will have a lasting impact on the face and future of conservation.”
