Stephanie has been a volunteer at SCD’s plant sale for the past 8 years and can be counted on to be there from open to close every year, without fail. She can identify the various native plants and their uses for our clients, and uses them in her own yard. “Stephanie is a saint,” says SCD staff member Julie Allen. In her work life, Stephanie is a para-educator in the Mukilteo school district. She consistently spends her own time coming up with project ideas for the classroom to help her students learn and conquer new skills.
Dr. Jim initially volunteered to help out at the Bethlehem Lutheran Church planting near Marysville. He then became a backyard Habitat Steward and has volunteered many days at the Conservation District Native Plant Sale. He is continually engaged with the District and regularly gives updates to us on what he is doing in his community. Dr. Jim is dedicated to conservation and to working with us to achieve it. We’re so grateful for his enthusiasm, dedication, and willingness to donate his time.
