Bob Chase

Bob Chase was a lover of the natural world and the primary public face of Loon Echo Land Trust through the organization’s first 15 years.  Passionate and charismatic, Bob’s  vision and leadership were a driving force behind Loon Echo’s initial formation and successes until his passing in 2005. In naming the Legacy Society after Bob we seek to honor his lifelong commitment to make the world a better place.
