KCD Senior Resource Planner Jay Mirro hosted the first Staff Field Day since before the COVID pandemic started. He gives a recap on his farm blog here:
Senior Resource Specialist, Rural Land Stewardship
Jay Mirro has served the people and resources of King County as a resource planner since 2000. He has visited thousands of farms and has written hundreds of farm conservation plans. Jay has practical and academic expertise on conservation practices and enjoys helping land managers meet their goals while protecting the environment — “saving the world, one farm at a time.” He grew up in rural New Jersey, working on horse and llama farms, and then studied Livestock and Range Management at the University of Idaho. Jay and his family own a 34-acre farm in Maple Valley. He looks forward to sharing with you what he has done around his farm on his next farm tour. When not working on his own or other farms, Jay enjoys remodeling his home, reading, travel, gardening hiking and helping his two boys grow up into young men.
