Friends of Hopewell Valley Open Space has been operating since 1987. The board of trustees, comprised of dedicated community members, guides FoHVOS in its mission to protect natural resources and open space in order to preserve the character of Hopewell Valley. FoHVOS is pleased to announce the addition of two new board members who bring extensive environmental knowledge and passionate enthusiasm to the board.
Nicole Langdo, a resident of Titusville, is the Founding Director of Painted Oak Nature School, a progressive nature-based preschool located in the Hopewell Valley. She was honored in 2017 with the Richard Rotter Award for Excellence in Environmental Education by the Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association. Nicole’s passion for connecting children with nature and insight into the natural world will help FoHVOS expand its community outreach and stewardship programs.
“FoHVOS is doing amazing things and I’m so thrilled to play a part in the future of the organization!” said Langdo.
“As a FoHVOS supporter and member, I’ve been impressed with how much the organization has accomplished over the past few years,” said Peters-Manning. “I’m really looking forward to the impact I can have going forward as a Trustee.”
Courtney and Nicole will replace retiring FoHVOS trustees Bruce Weise and Chris Berry.
“The best part of reporting into the Board of Trustees is having the opportunity to interact with amazing people who bring a diverse set of backgrounds and ideas,” said Lisa Wolff, FoHVOS executive director. “We are so grateful that Chris and Bruce provided the solid stewardship and financial foundation that FoHVOS is relying upon to gain our accreditation this year. Nicole and Courtney bring great energy and enthusiasm. I have no doubt their fresh perspective will help FoHVOS achieve new heights and success in our latest initiatives.”
