Welcome Patricia Ruby, Executive Director


We are very excited that Patricia Ruby has joined the land trust as the new Executive Director. “Patti’s background in environmental conservation and sustainability are an excellent match with the land trust’s work to preserve the natural beauty and resources of Hunterdon County” said Ron Monaco, President of the Board of Trustees. Patti comes to the Hunterdon Land Trust from the Sustainability Institute at The College of New Jersey where she served as program manager of the award-winning Sustainable Jersey program. “I am very excited to join the land trust team” Patti said. “I grew up close to Hunterdon County and always enjoyed the family farms and beautiful landscapes that define the area and make me feel that I truly belong to this place. I am very fortunate that my career allows me to help communities maintain a high quality of life so that our children and grandchildren continue to enjoy the rural and historic character of Hunterdon.” In addition to working with the Sustainable Jersey Program, Patti worked with the Lamington Conservancy and the Raritan Headwaters Association (formerly the Upper Raritan Watershed Association). She holds a Master’s Degree in Environmental Management from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, where she focused on planning, policy and sustainable development. Patti loves to travel but feels lucky to have great outdoor adventures just outside our front doors. “I am so happy to join the land trust to ensure that we and future generations always have such opportunities.”

A Remarkable Year for the Land Trust


Happy new year to all our friends and supporters. With your help, the Land Trust has had a banner year. In early 2010 the Dvoor Farm was listed on the National and NJ Register of Historic Places, and, as of two weeks ago, we moved our offices into the farmhouse.
