In her free time, you’ll find Ashley hiking and camping on our public lands. But, during the work day, she spends her time coordinating KCD’s Washington Conservation Corps Crews, visiting with a homeowner to talk about managing a streamside blackberry infestation, or surprising her coworkers with donuts back at the office.
Ashley joined KCD in December 2017 with a background in stream restoration and environmental education. Native to Washington, Ashley grew up in Kent and later moved to Bellingham to attend Western Washington University, where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Science with an emphasis in marine ecology. As a resource specialist, Ashley coordinates the Urban Shorelines program at KCD which gives technical assistance to homeowners living along streams and wetlands and plans and implements around ten projects yearly.
Join us at an upcoming events to hear from Ashley about streamside restoration and how homeowners can take advantage of technical assistance site visits and other KCD’s services.
