The Lake Placid Land Conservancy (LPLC) has announced the promotion of Kerry Crowningshield to Executive Director. Crowningshield joined LPLC in 2016 as the Outreach Coordinator.
In a statement to the press, Ms. Crowningshield said: “Growing up in the area gives me a unique understanding of the communities LPLC serves and their relationship to the Adirondacks. I choose to live and work here because I developed a connection to the lakes, rivers, and forests as a child, and want to ensure future generations and visitors have this same opportunity.”
Crowningshield resides in Port Kent and earned a B.S. from Cornell University, an A.A.S. from Paul Smith’s College, and her Masters in Environmental Law and Policy from Vermont Law School. She previously worked for the Lake Champlain Basin Program educating the public on water quality issues throughout the Lake Champlain Watershed.
The Lake Placid Land Conservancy is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit land trust that partners with landowners and communities in the Ausable and Saranac River watersheds to conserve important open spaces, viewsheds, wildlife habitats, water resources, and recreational lands that create opportunities for people to enjoy the region’s natural beauty. Their office is located in Lake Placid and they have preserves and conservation easements in Keene, Wilmington, Jay, and Lake Placid.
