Our office has had a few changes.
We would like to introduce you to your Conservation District staff.
Renee M. Hadley
Renee supervises day-to-day operations, coordinates with agencies, plans outreach and education activities, and writes grants. She is a licensed geologist with a background in soil identification, landslides mitigation, and erosion hazards. Her door is always open, so come on by and visit.
Assistant Manager: Finance & Grants Administrator
Audrey manages finances, office administration, annual elections, district meetings, and the 4th grade forestry program…whew. She is busy.
Burn Program Coordinator
Jeff is our irreplaceable IT support guy who works on the agricultural burn permit application, VSP and helps with all aspects of District work.
Riparian Project Technician
You may find Joanna knee deep in streams but that’s ok. She monitors water quality in a few of our local streams. As our biologist, she has taken on the Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (CREP).
Civil Engineering Technician
Lisa is growing her skills from drafting Auto-CAD and GIS maps to writing grants and expanding our focus to Fire Awareness.
Lance Horning, P.E.
Lance makes sure we are doing the right things by engineering our habitat restoration and bank stabilization projects, fish passage structures, pumping stations, and pipelines.
