With 2019 coming to a close, we’d like to wish our members and friends a very happy holiday season and continued happiness and success in the new year and new decade! 2019 has been another successful year for the Land Conservancy, with 11 properties preserved, totaling over 400 acres.
Along with the wonderful work our team has been doing this year, we’d like to take this opportunity to acknowledge our exceptional interns who have helped us so much in 2019: Christine Leonhardt, Chase Palmer, Caroline Gold, Jake Butler, Jessica Schottanes, Alvin Chin, Jared Bazaral, Billy Clark, Jeff Wear, Brian Corrigan, Morgan Astorino, Kenton Matthaei and Lily Makhlouf. Thank you all for your contributions.
As well, we’d like to congratulate our two scholarship recipients, Xena Itzkowitz Of Manalapan, who was the 2019 recipient of the The Rogers Family Scholarship, and Michael Allers Of Frenchtown who received this year’s Russell W. Myers Scholarship. We are proud to support the next generation of New Jersey environmentalists!
Each year we help to preserve all kinds of properties, including dense forestland and working farms that have been important to their community for generations. The Land Conservancy of New Jersey is working to keep communities and natural spaces thriving, and we are excited to continue our work into 2020. Help us continue to preserve the landscapes you love by donating today!
