The Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy has announced the recent election of Hilary Jager to the organization’s Board of Directors, reports The Brooklyn Eagle.

Jager is known for co-founding A Better Way, a grassroots, non-profit organization that promotes sustainable and environmentally-conscious infrastructure in New York City. In addition, Jager was previously an Assistant United States Attorney in the Eastern District of New York, focusing on cybercrime and terrorism.

“Hilary makes a wonderful addition to the team,” said Chris Coffey, Conservancy Board Chairman.

“Her background in public service and expertise as a co-founder of A Better Way provides valuable non-profit experience and insight to the Conservancy, especially as we look to expand our environmental education efforts."

The conservancy plays a vital role in energizing Brooklyn's waterfront and many park-goers are hopeful for the innovative and sustainable programming Jager has in store.

“Brooklyn Bridge Park is a destination beloved by tourists and New Yorkers alike — and with good reason thanks to the extensive programming offered by the Conservancy in this stunning urban oasis!” Hilary Jager said.

“Because it offers something for everyone, it is a park for everyone. I am excited to work with the Conservancy Board to continue to make the opportunities afforded by the outdoors — whether youth soccer, an educational class or a waterfront summer movie -- accessible, enriching and rejuvenating for all."
