Robin in the fieldAfter doing a stellar job as the Farm Resource Specialist for the Puyallup-White River Watersheds these past almost 2 and a half years, Robin Buckingham has left PCD to pursue a career with our sister agency, the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). He will be based out of his hometown of Olympia.

Robin brought much needed GIS and NRCS resource management system planning experience and expertise to PCD, and he was always happy to educate and help fellow staff in these areas. Robin will be doing much the same thing that did here in his new role with the NRCS, assisting farm owners to protect and improve the natural resources on their farms. Helping others comes easy to Robin, whether it was farm owners, partners of PCD, or fellow staff members, he was always willing and able to give assistance in any way that he could. And his help was always given in a quiet and respectful manner. He will be missed for those reasons, and we wish him the best in his new position and look forward to seeing him at future NRCS trainings.
