New Member Profile: Meet Stephanie Crockatt,
Executive Director of the Buffalo Olmstead Parks Conservancy
Bridging her background in landscape architecture with skills in non-profit association management and fundraising has brought Stephanie Crockatt's career full circle. Today she oversees the preservation advocacy and landscape stewardship for Buffalo's 150+ year old historic Olmsted park system; the first urban park system designed in the nation. The entire park system is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Conservancy is the non-profit caretaker in a public-private agreement with the City of Buffalo, where 60% of the park system's $3.6 million operating budget is raised each year by the Conservancy. The organization employs over 120 full & part time workers and manages over 2,000 volunteers.
