People smiling at the 2023 Annual Meeting and Celebration.It was a clear, warm evening as more than two hundred guests began arriving at the Pioneer Park Pavilion in Puyallup to attend Pierce Conservation District’s Annual Meeting and Celebration on Wednesday, March 15th.

Guests were greeted by staff and community partners showcasing completed projects and ongoing programs through a series of a dozen posters while they enjoyed delicious appetizers catered by Savory & Sweet Café, Puyallup.

For more than an hour, the venue hummed with the sounds of discovery and networking as connections were made around PCD’s water quality, habitat, agriculture, and climate resilience work. Throughout the evening, voters arrived to cast their Board of Supervisors ballots. Many voters were new to the District and took the opportunity to find out more about PCD’s programs and services.

The event culminated with an awards ceremony honoring the following 2022 Conservation Award recipients:
