CAMDEN - Olivia Glenn, New Jersey Conservation Foundation's South Jersey metro regional manager, was honored by the Camden County Board of Freeholders for her role in making the county a more sustainable place to live.

Freeholder Michelle Gentek-Mayer presented the county's monthly Sustainability Award to Olivia at the Nov. 12 freeholder meeting.

A lifelong lover of nature, Olivia grew up in Camden and now lives in Pennsauken Township. Her dedication to the environment was inspired by a childhood visit to Farnham Park in Camden; it was there she decided to make it her mission to protect the environment.

After receiving a bachelor's degree in Environmental Studies from Dartmouth College and a master's degree in Environmental Management from Yale University, she worked at a charter school in Camden and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection before joining New Jersey Conservation Foundation in 2014. Her position includes a special emphasis on Camden, where she is responsible for acquiring and developing parks and greenways. In addition to her work with New Jersey Conservation Foundation, she serves as a member of the Pennsauken Township Environmental Commission and the Camden County Open Space Advisory Committee.

New Jersey Conservation Foundation is a private nonprofit that preserves land and natural resources throughout New Jersey for the benefit of all. Since 1960, New Jersey Conservation has protected 125,000 acres of open space - from the Highlands to the Pine Barrens to the Delaware Bayshore, from farms to forests to urban and suburban parks. For more information about the Foundation's programs and preserves, go to www.njconservation.org or call 1-888-LAND-SAVE (1-888-526-3728).
