Parker Joins Ojai Valley Land Conservancy

By on October 2, 2013 in News, Press

The Ojai Valley Land Conservancy announced the hiring of Tania Parker as their new Director of Advancement. As Advancement Director, Parker is responsible for strengthening the relationship between the Ojai Valley Land Conservancy, its members, and the community as a whole. “We are very pleased to have Tania join OVLC,” said Executive Director Greg Gamble. “One of Tania’s most important functions is to serve our supporters, and we know that she will excel in this area.”

Parker grew up in Ojai and graduated from The Thacher School. “Growing up in Ojai and attending Thacher, I developed a great love for the open space surrounding Ojai. Spending my days hiking, riding, and camping, the trails of the Ojai Valley became my second home.” Parker went on to earn a degree in Forestry and Natural Resources Management from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. Parker has pursued various passions over the years, but most recently was working in Thacher’s Communications office and running her own graphics design business.  Parker has settled on the east end with her husband Tobias, stepson Evan, and dog Tanner. “In addition to her considerable professional talents,” Gamble added, “Tania brings deep Ojai roots and an understanding of the Ojai Valley which we believe will greatly help OVLC better serve the community.”

The Ojai Valley Land Conservancy works to protect the views, trails, water and wildlife of the Ojai Valley. Since its founding in 1987, the Ojai Valley Land Conservancy has permanently protected over 2,000 acres. On that land every year, the Ojai Valley Land Conservancy maintains dozens of miles of trails, guides hundreds of visitors, and hosts thousands of guests—hikers, bicyclists, equestrians, school children and others.
