Jill Lashly has worked at the OVLC for three years as our Restoration Program Manager—promoting habitat restoration and conservation in the Ojai Valley. She manages important habitat restoration projects, plays a vital role in land conservation projects, and monitors our conservation easements. Her accomplishments include working with 40 private landowners and the community to remove approximately 23 acres of Arundo (an invasive plant that threatens our watershed) along five miles of San Antonio Creek and supervising a restoration team that has planted tens of thousands of native plants on our preserves. She has brought in $760,813 of grant funds to the OVLC’s restoration program in the last three years.

Her understanding of a breadth of conservation issues, grant writing skills, and knack for working with landowners led to her promotion to Conservation Director. While she will continue overseeing the restoration projects, which are in good hands with our field crew leader and restoration team, her new focus will be on emerging land projects. We are excited to see the direction Jill takes the OVLC as our new Conservation Director. Congratulations, Jill!
