The Land Conservancy of San Luis Obispo County has named activists Kara Blakeslee and Claire Wineman to its board of trustees.

Blakeslee of San Luis Obispo has worked with the Nature Conservancy and the American Land Conservancy on a variety of local land conservation projects, including the conservation of the Guidetti Ranch, Hearst Ranch and the South Chimineas Ranch. She also worked on the unsuccessful effort to conserve the Wild Cherry Canyon property above Avila Beach.

Wineman of rural Santa Maria comes from a cattle-ranching family and has worked in outreach to Spanish-speaking farmers in Santa Maria and in international economic development. She serves as the president of the Grower-Shipper Association of Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties.

“These talented leaders have expertise in various professional areas, and they share a common purpose in safeguarding the wild and natural places in our county,” said Herb Kandel, president of the trustees.
