Laura Szwak, Director of Outreach & Education

Laura manages NJ Conservation Foundation's Conservation Assistance program that includes organizing an annual conference, educational events through the Land Trust Network and a grant program called the Franklin Parker Conservation Excellence grant. With The Nature Conservancy and Rowan University, Laura developed an online mapping system called the Conservation Blueprint that identifies priority lands to preserve for agriculture, natural resource integrity and recreation in NJ.   From 1994-2004, she served as Assistant Director of Morris Land Conservancy (now The Land Conservancy of NJ). From 1979-1991, Laura worked in Washington DC for the National Park Service as an Outdoor Recreation Planner with a two-year assignment to the President’s Commission on Americans Outdoors. She earned a Masters of Science degree in Recreation & Parks Administration from the Pennsylvania State University and a Bachelors of Arts degree from the University of Georgia.  A resident of Mt. Olive Township, Laura serves as chair of the Morris County Municipal Utilities Authority, vice chair of the Crossroads of the American Revolution, member of the NJ Trails Council, and builds trails as a member of the township’s open space committee.
