Welcome, Courtney Reimann!
Please join The Lebanon Valley Conservancy as we welcome Courtney Reimann as Executive Director! Courtney officially joined us on Wednesday, June 30, and has been working with Laurie to learn more about our great organization. Take a minute to read about Courtney below. We're thrilled to have her onboard at the Conservancy!
My name is Courtney. I grew up in Myerstown and now live in Lebanon, Pa., with my husband and two sons. My background is in non-profit work in the human services field and serving as the board secretary for the Lebanon Valley Council on the Arts. In my youth, my experience with Envirothon taught me to respect, conserve, and appreciate natural resources and the environment.

My work and volunteer pursuits are reflective of my desire to live in and help to foster an inclusive and welcoming community with ample opportunities for arts and culture and where this beautiful area is protected, preserved, and enjoyed. As my children get older and make choices about where they will live, I hope they see the greater Lebanon area as a place they can call home. Our area is perfect for outdoor recreation and relaxation. Some of my favorite activities are walking along the Union Canal, taking my children to explore the stream at Levitz Park, and cycling on the Lebanon Valley Rail Trail.

My goal is to continue the mission of the Conservancy by connecting to the Lebanon
community, increasing understanding of the importance of our natural world on the local level, and for The Lebanon Valley Conservancy to be part of the larger national and international conservancy movement. I look forward to meeting you and working with the Lebanon Valley Conservancy board, members, volunteers and supporters. If you're interested in volunteering or getting involved in your local environment, please feel free to reach out to me! - Courtney Reimann, Executive Director

A Letter from the President
The Conservancy has been very fortunate to have Laurie Crawford serving as our executive director for the last five years. During her tenure, she has done great work networking in the the community, raising awareness on local conservation issues, and establishing our name and reputation as stewards of the Lebanon Valley. Laurie remains committed to the initiatives and events that she helped establish and plans to continue to support the Conservancy by volunteering on our advisory committee. On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to thank Laurie for her time, work, and dedication to our environment. Best wishes on your future endeavors! -Jon Schach, Board President
