Lovina Englund

EXecutive director

Lovina has been a resident of the Palouse region since 2003 and lives in Moscow with her husband and daughter. Her connection to the community began as a student attending the University of Idaho, majoring in rangeland ecology and management in the College of Natural Resources (MS ’07). She held professional staff positions at the University of Idaho from 2006-2016 in both the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences and the College of Natural Resources, and most recently with the Palouse Conservation District.

Her professional and personal networks extend deeply into the community and throughout the west. She is thrilled to be part of a local organization that enriches the quality of life for regional residents and wildlife while supporting local landowners who seek conservation tools to achieve long-lasting goals on their private property. In her free time, she enjoys every opportunity to lace up her hiking boots or running shoes, pedal around, read, seek out and explore new destinations, stop and look at flowers blooming or take in a view, tinker in the kitchen, and share a meal or a social spell with her favorite people.
