Announcement to Members – December 2015
Welcome from the New Executive Director!
Dear Members of the Crafton Hills Open Space Conservancy,
Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Lynn Berkeley-Krantz and I am the new Executive Director of the Crafton Hills Open Space Conservancy (CHOSC). I am excited to take the helm after a brief vacancy of the position between July and September of this year after the previous Director, Karen Pope, moved to Washington State. Thank you, Karen, for all of the hard work that you put into the CHOSC since you took the position in 2008.
I apologize if CHOSC has been non-responsive in the interim four month period; however I am writing to say that we are back up and running! We are planning a wide range of events and activities for the coming year, together with lots of new volunteer opportunities and ways to connect! CHOSC will be hosting a series of hikes, bikes, and equestrian events; and natural history talks and presentations at the Crafton Hills College by local experts. Look for announcements of upcoming meet and greets, habitat restoration events and member activities, including some musical and artistic happenings. Something for everyone!
The CHOSC is a private, non-profit organization chartered to oversee more than five and one-half square miles of natural open space in the hills. Straddling the jurisdictions of the cities of Yucaipa and Redlands, San Bernardino County and Crafton Hills College, the CHOSC is the only organization that represents the entire hills. Ex-officio members on our Board of Directors represent the cities, County and College, as well as active members from the community.
If you are interested in getting involved, or have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me via:

Now, more than ever, our communities need the many benefits that natural open spaces provide. I encourage you to get out and enjoy the Hills! Get involved! Get inspired! I’ll look forward to meeting you in person at one of our events or out on the trails in the near future.
