The Lake George Land Conservancy (LGLC) announced the recent addition of two new directors to its board, Peg Olsen and Robert Singer.
Olsen’s history with the LGLC goes back to the late 1980s. Olsen was co-partner in the firm Environmental Communication Services and was hired as a consultant by the Lake George Association Fund. Her initial task was to conduct a survey of landowners in the watershed to determine the desire and need for a local land trust. The result was that the Lake George Association Fund put together a separate board of directors and incorporated the LGLC in 1988.
Olsen continued her work with the LGLC as a board member, from 1989 to 2004, serving as treasurer from 1990 to 1996. She rejoined the LGLC as an advisory board member from 2012 to 2017.
She has a Ph.D. in ecological economics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. She is vice president of Atlantic Flyway and International Programs for Audubon. She worked for The Nature Conservancy for 14 years.
With over 20 years of experience in the outdoor sporting goods industry, Singer is currently international sales and marketing manager for Filmar Corp., a manufacturer of winter sports accessories based in Montreal.
Singer has served on the LGLC board from 2004 to 2016. He was secretary of the organization from 2005 until 2016. He rejoins the board after being an Advisory Board member since 2016.
