“I started at The Land Conservancy as a volunteer because I believed strongly in their mission.  After all these years, I am thrilled to still be able to support all the wonderful work we do to preserve and protect land in New Jersey.”

Barbara’s favorite acre: The Hawkwatch at Wildcat Ridge – “I never get tired of hiking to this location and admiring the fabulous view.”
