Board of Supervisors

Jeanette Dorner Jeanette Dorner, Chair (Elected Position, 2018 - 2021)
 Jeanette first began working with the Pierce Conservation District in 1996  when she created a community group to restore the health of Muck Creek  and the District became a major supporter of that effort. She worked for 11   years as the Salmon Recovery Program Manager with the Nisqually Tribe,   coordinating the protection and restoration of the Nisqually watershed, then   five years as the Director of Ecosystem Recovery at the Puget Sound   Partnership. She now is the Executive Director of the Mid Sound Fisheries Enhancement Group, a non-profit group working with people in the Mid Puget Sound region to restore salmon habitat and recover salmon populations. Jeanette believes strongly in the mission of the conservation district to empower local landowners to be good stewards of their lands through voluntary and incentive programs and to ensure that our Pierce County community has access to healthy local foods that are sustainably produced.

Scott Gruber Scott Gruber, Vice Chair (Appointed Position, 2018 - 2021)
 I'm honored and very pleased to contribute to the good works of the Pierce  Conservation District.  I enjoy supporting the PCD's programs and staff by  tapping my 30 years of business experience which ranges from design,  wholesale, manufacturing, and retail to agriculture and farming. I have been  a professional nurseryman since 2002 and farmer since 2007. I raise and  process poultry and rabbit for meat, grow hundreds of varieties of food  producing plants, and am a general contractor specializing in sustainable landscape design and construction. All that I do depends on responsible stewardship of natural resources. Helping the PCD contributes to enjoying a world we all share - now and into the future.
