Justin Boner

North Carolina Director, Conservation Acquisition


JJustin Bonerustin joined the Fund in 2006 as the Ecotourism Programs Coordinator for the Palmetto-Peartree Preserve in Tyrrell County, NC.  He has assisted a wide range of partners from helping the North Carolina Forest Service protect the largest privately owned tract in western North Carolina to working with Catawba County to provide better access and security to Bunker Hill Covered Bridge.
