Jayme Gordon has committed 23 years of service to the Pierce Conservation District. From the days of a very small team, where small contracts with other organizations and cities were the way the district funded its services to now a larger organization with more sustainable revenue, Jayme has been central to the program delivery all along the way. She started at the District as a Volunteer Coordinator and quickly moved up and managing the Stream Team program, which is designed to engage community members in water quality monitoring, citizen education and hands-on open space stewardship opportunities.
Over the years, Jayme has taken on more responsibilities of supporting the start-up of the district’s Environmental Education program, ongoing maintenance and stewardship of our habitat sites, new Shore Friendly Pierce Program and the district’s involvement in more and more landscape scale habitat restoration initiatives. One of the things I enjoyed most is watching Jayme’s interactions with volunteers and community members. At every event, whether it be a Conservation Celebration or volunteer restoration event, individuals would greet Jayme like a family member and be excited to see her. She sincerely appreciated every volunteer that she interacted with as she knew volunteers were the heart of the district’s success. Her dedication to the mission of PCD and energy to develop and grow the programs is truly appreciated. Happy trails Jayme and you can rest assured your many contributions to the district have been significant, meaningful and will have an impact for decades to come.
