Beginning in May, Lydia Reese will be taking on the role of National Partner in Action Manager with A Rocha UK. She will be facilitating events and conservation work around Britain with partner organizations including Hilfield Friary!
From A Rocha’s website: “A Rocha UK is a Christian charity working for the protection and restoration of the natural world. This is our response to the biblical mandate to care for the earth, and a demonstration of the Christian hope for God’s world. We do this through:
– practical involvement in nature conservation projects and ecological research;
– campaigning on biodiversity issues;
– engaging with churches, schools, communities and individuals.
Part of the worldwide family of A Rocha organisations committed to conservation action as an expression of Christian mission, we work collaboratively with others who share our passion for the planet and our desire for its flourishing.”
Lydia is particularly excited about the opportunity to continue working towards conserving Creation at Hilfield and now also with other partners around the UK from Scotland to Devon!
