Glenn DeRussy has had the privilege of enjoying Colorado’s unique beauty and quality of life since moving to the area in 1984, and is still in awe of the inspiring scenery and access to trails and open space. “Very few other cities have this available to their citizens”, says Glenn. “Many of us who love this area have seen some of the beauty lost due to poorly planned development and we realize that, without action, more of the lands that we cherish could be impaired in the future”. It’s for this reason that Glenn became involved with land conservation. “I wanted to help preserve what makes this area so unique for our current and future generations”. Prior to joining the CCLC he had served on the boards of the Douglas Land Conservancy and the Douglas County Parks Advisory Board. Glenn’s career was in advertising and he’s an avid cyclist and hiker.
