The Conservancy team is deeply committed to developing an inclusive, diverse and equitable culture for team members, trustees and partners.
She also works with other TNC state chapters and external partners across the region to build cross-boundary approaches to ensure effective conservation in the face of large-scale threats like climate change and biodiversity loss.
Lori has a deep appreciation and love of the natural environment and is committed to making the world a better place by being part of the solution to fight climate change and positively impact the planet for future generations.
