    Executive Director
    crcd executive director Julie Konno

    I happily joined CRCD in December, 2017. I have been a
    resident of North Fork for 9 years after living in the Santa Cruz
    Mountains for 31 years. I have a small homestead with critters
    both domesticated and wild and I’m constantly experimenting
    with growing organic food and decorative plants. My Mother’s
    family have lived in the Central Sierra Foothills since 1860 and
    my Father’s family has been involved in Lumber and Forestry
    for generations. Conservation and sustainable use of our
    resources is something I began learning as a child and I hope to
    help my community with new and exciting programs as they
    develop.
