Suzanne Barton

Director of Planned Giving


As manager of our planned giving program, Suzanne works with donors who are interested in ensuring Natural Lands’ future. “Our planned giving donors are a terrific group–all are committed and passionate about our mission.”

Prior to joining Natural Lands, Suzanne worked for The Pew Charitable Trusts; the Big Sky Field Office as well as the New Jersey Chapter of The Nature Conservancy; the Academy of Natural Sciences; and volunteered as a guide at the Morris Arboretum. She’s working towards an Ecological Gardening Certificate from Mt. Cuba Center.

Suzanne still remembers learning that The Pew Charitable Trusts’ first “green” grant was awarded to the Philadelphia Conservationists, Natural Lands’ founding organization. She considers it a sign of kismet.

Suzanne earned a B.A. from Hamilton College.
