Bolton Landing, NY – The Lake George Land Conservancy (LGLC) is honored to announce the addition of Robert Von Werne to its Board of Directors.
A long-time visitor to the Bolton Landing area, Robert lives on Long Island where he works in law enforcement. He earned a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Marist College, and has extensive experience with land trusts throughout the country thanks to his involvement with a philanthropic association devoted to conservation causes.
“Robert really gets what land trusts do and what the LGLC is doing for Lake George,” said LGLC Executive Director Jamie Brown. “He brings a great perspective to the organization, along with a heart-felt and sincere love of the lake. He’s a strong addition to our Board and I look forward to working with him.”
“For as long as I can remember,” said Von Werne, “Lake George was the highlight of my family’s summers. Many of my fondest and most vivid childhood memories were made at the lake. These days, I’m doing my best to create great memories for my own children here. By pitching in at the LGLC, I plan to do my part to care for the lake and the land around it so that future generations can enjoy it just as I have. I am also eager to instill a sense of conservationism and service in my children through my work at the LGLC.”
Von Werne continued, “Theodore Roosevelt said that ‘the nation behaves well if it treats the natural resources as assets which it must turn over to the next generation increased and not impaired in value.’ It’s with this spirit that I look forward to performing my duties at the LGLC.”
