Barbara Erickson new head of Trustees of Reservations
Barbara Erickson spent much of her childhood in Wyoming playing in the great outdoors, learning to love and respect nature. When she came to Boston in 2001 to work for Harvard Medical School, she immediately liked what she saw here as well. “My husband says my soul was born here,” said Erickson, 39, the new president of the Sharon-based Trustees of Reservations, the nation’s oldest land trust. She starts her new job in mid-July.
