Alex Lasater, of Elbert County, was among the five new trustees recently named to the board of Palmer Land Trust, a conservation organization that serves the Arkansas River Basin.
Joining Lasater are Paula Chostner, of Pueblo County, Marc Dettenrieder, of Teller County, and Kristie Nackord and Blake Osborn, of Fremont County. The five new trustees expand the geographical representation of the board, helping to ensure that the entire region is well-served, according to a news release.
“We are honored to welcome these new board members,” Executive Director Rebecca Jewet said in the release. “They have all demonstrated a commitment to our conservation mission, and their addition to our board brings important skills and experience to ensure that we continue to meet the needs of Southern Colorado communities.”
Operating his family's ranch in Matheson, Lasater is the sole proprietor of the foundation herd of the Beefmaster cattle breed, believed to be the oldest closed herd of cattle in existence, the release said. He is a member of the Pikes Peak Cattleman's Association, the Colorado Cattlemen's Association, and the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association. He also serves as a board member of the Beefmaster Education Endowment Fund.
The Palmer Land Trust serves southern Colorado and the Arkansas River Basin from headwaters regions to important farmland in the Lower Arkansas Valley. The organization focuses on maintaining the region's working lands, expanding outdoor recreation opportunities and preserving scenic vistas, the release said.
