Ken Grudens is the executive director of the Indian River Land Trust in Vero Beach, Florida. After the land trust’s successful preservation of the McKee Botanical Garden in the 1990s, Ken was recruited in 2004 to refocus the organization on the preservation of other threatened lands in Indian River County. Since 2010, the Indian River Land Trust has raised more than $12 million to acquire over 1,000 acres and 10 miles of shoreline along the Indian River Lagoon. Ken has a master's degree in landscape architecture from the College of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse. Before joining the Land Trust, Ken managed the Farmland Protection Program for the State of New York, and prior to that was director of land protection for the Columbia Land Conservancy in the Hudson River Valley.
