Abigail Harvey was recently announced as executive director of the Lebanon Valley Conservancy (TLVC). In this role, Harvey will focus on advancing TLVC’s strategic land protection priorities, as well as sustainable fundraising to support the organization’s mission and community conservation initiatives, including tree planting and environmental education.

Harvey began working with TLVC’s land protection director, Courtney Reimann, last month. “Abigail is very passionate about the environment and conservation. Her leadership skills and enthusiasm will not only benefit the Conservancy, but also our community,” shared Reimann. “She’s really looking forward to meeting and working with our partners, volunteers, and donors.”

To date, Harvey has helped with Earth Day, Earth Month, and Arbor Day events for the Conservancy. “The next big event we are involved with is Tour de Lebanon Valley on June 8, a cycling event that provides participants with amazing views of the county’s landscapes. After that, we’re hosting our 2024 golf tournament on August 26 at Lebanon Country Club. The course is Audubon-certified, so there’s a focus to preserve and enhance wildlife habitat and protect natural resources,” explained Harvey. “Both events will help us raise funds to support upcoming environmental projects and conservation in the Lebanon Valley.”

Harvey holds a Bachelor of Science in leadership and organizational management from Eastern Mennonite University. She is also the founder of Fount and Fill, a local refillery offering earth-friendly products and solutions that encourage consumers to reuse, refill, and reduce waste.
