Since 2009, Nancy L. Kourland has served as an associate at Rosen & Associates, PC, based out of New York City. In this position, she represents debtors and creditors found in chapter 11 cases. She also partakes in bankruptcy and district court appearances. Active within her community, Nancy L.

Established in 1980 by a group of concerned individuals, the CPC works to preserve, and maintain the integrity of, Central Park. With 40 million annual visitors, the park remains the most frequently visited urban park in the country. As a result, the Conservancy provides crew members to aerate lawns, rake leaves, plant shrubs, maintain the drainage system, and protect the lakes and streams from pollution and algae.

Throughout the year, the CPC hosts events at Central Park for individuals and families to attend. One event, Birding Basics for Families, is scheduled to be held on May 31, 2015, at the Charles A. Dana Discovery Center inside Central Park. Geared toward those ages five and older, this free event features members of the New York City Audubon Society, who will teach attendees how to spot birds that migrate to the area.
