About Leslie M. Ficcaglia

Leslie Ficcaglia has long been interested in ecotourism as a means of protecting her area's resources. Her ecotourism brochure was distributed by her township and became the core for this web site. She served as a member of the Maurice River Township Planning Board for almost twenty years and as its chair for the last seven years of her tenure, and continues as vice-chairman of the Cumberland County Planning Board. She was active in the effort to obtain federal Wild and Scenic status for the Maurice River and its tributaries, working on the task force established for that purpose. In addition she is the Pinelands Commissioner for Cumberland County and a past trustee for the Association of New Jersey Environmental Commissions. She also sits on the county Tourism Council; serves as vice-chair for the township Environmental Committee; acts as trustee for Citizens United, a local watershed organization; is a member of the Delaware Bayshores Advisory Council of The Nature Conservancy; and chairs the board of the Riverfront Renaissance Center for the Arts. Her biography is listed in Who's Who in America.

Professionally Mrs. Ficcaglia, a retired psychologist, is a portrait artist. She finds it especially satisfying to depict the people of the area against the background of the local landscape which she loves. Her commissioned oil paintings hang in public and private settings in a number of states.
