Nancy Scolari Recognized by Marin Resource Conservation District

Marin Conservation League President Jon Elam with Nancy Scolari, Executive Director of the Marin Resource Conservation District, at the Conservation League’s annual dinner last month. Scolari received the John M. McPhail, Jr. Green Business Award. The Conservation League recognized her work with the Marin RCD for bringing together diverse stakeholders to design and implement numerous conservation projects on Marin County ranches, including improvements to water quality, habitat enhancement, carbon sequestration, and pasture health.

This year the Marin RCD, based in Pt. Reyes Station, is managing conservation projects with budgets totaling $740,000 on seven local farms and ranches, all with the cooperation and assistance of partnering agencies and the farmers and ranchers.
