Simply put, Ron Vickers is a guy you want on your team.
Ron recently spearheaded the Nanticoke Park acquisition and was pivotal in securing both public and private partners who successfully collaborated to protect a beautiful 41 acre property along the Nanticoke River which was endanger of being developed. In my opinion, Ron’s best attribute is his ability to listen and his thoughtfulness in taking all opinions into account. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Ron and have learned a lot from him and his kind and thoughtful approach. The Sussex County Land Trust is extremely lucky to have such a talented individual on its board who truly understands the inner workings of Delaware as well as land preservation efforts.” Casey Kenton, Sussex County Land Trust
