Audrey Rust to retire as head of Peninsula Open Space Trust

 

Audrey Rust, who has led the Peninsula Open Space Trust for 24 years, will retire as president this summer, she announced today (Jan. 25).

"During my time at POST, we've saved 53,000 acres of open space out of a total of 64,000 acres since our founding in 1977," she said in the announcement. "We've raised more than $325 million to save stunning scenery, world-class recreation, productive farmland and vulnerable wildlife habitat in one of the world's most expensive real estate markets."

Executive Vice President Walter Moore will take over as president when she leaves on July 1, Ms. Rust said. Mr. Moore has been with POST for 16 years.
