Planning Fellow: Jake Gerardi

In 2021, The Land Conservancy of New Jersey introduced two full-year planning fellowships to individuals with an undergraduate or master’s degree who are starting careers in conservation. These fellows stay with us for a year to learn valuable expertise, technology, and relationships, and in turn they give us a boost with their energy and fresh perspectives.


To say this program has been a success would be an understatement. We’re consistently impressed by the skills and enthusiasm these fellows bring, and by what they contribute to the farm plans, open space and recreation plans, and other projects with our municipal clients and conservation partners.


This month we welcomed Jake Gerardi as our most recent planning fellow. Jake graduated from Temple University with a BS community development and he’s currently working towards his master’s degree in city and regional planning at Temple as well. His interests lie in city and environmental planning, as well as sustainable development.


Outside of work, Jake enjoys outdoor activities such as hiking and skiing, as well as collecting music and traveling. He also enjoys spending time with family and friends.


“The main reason I was excited about TLCNJ,” Jake says, “is the fact that its mission is preserving open space in our nation’s most densely populated state. Conservation and open space have always been interests of mine and I can't wait to see where this opportunity takes me!”
