Alison Greenberg

Alison is Executive Director of Georgetown Heritage, where she is spearheading an ambitious plan to revitalize and interpret the Georgetown section of the C&O Canal, as well as other Georgetown historic sites. Previously, Alison Greenberg was a Programme Officer at the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN). At IUCN she designed and managed a complex, interdisciplinary process to generate the blueprint to transform over 200,000 protected areas, following the 2014 World Parks Congress in Sydney, Australia. Previously, Alison had a sixteen-year tenure at The Nature Conservancy, where she developed new programs to influence global conservation outcomes. Working closely with business leaders in New York, D.C., San Francisco, and Chicago, she also raised leadership funding from high-net-worth individuals for the Conservancy's global conservation goals. Alison has developed strategic plans for many other conservation efforts from global corporate engagement to volunteerism and has advised the vision, operations and development plans for a number of TNC programs and NGO partners including Save the Rhino Trust in Namibia. Most recently at TNC, Alison made a successful case to the organization's leadership to develop a new core of expertise in the social sciences; she then created the vision, structure, and operations plan for a team of social scientists at the Conservancy and coalesced the necessary financing for this team. 

A native of Washington D.C., Alison is fluent in French from having spent many childhood summers in Southern France. She lives in D.C. with her fiance Marc, is a Virginia Master Naturalist, and a biking, birding, and gardening enthusiast.
