Manada Conservancy has announced their first full-time Land Protection Director, Jennifer Dunlap. Jen (formerly Manada Conservancy’s Executive Director) returns with her wealth of knowledge about the Conservancy’s projects and partnerships and is thrilled to be directing her attention to land protection in this new role.

In her free time, Jen enjoys kayaking the Swatara Creek with her husband and spending as much time as possible outdoors introducing their toddler to nature. Please reach out to Jen with all your land protection ideas, opportunities, and questions ([email protected]). In her words: “As Land Protection Director, I am fortunate to be able to focus my time working to protect the creeks and woodlands I grew up with. I am grateful to have had these spaces to explore throughout my life and want future generations to have them too.”
