Annual Land Conservation Panel Discussion
The third annual Land Conservation Panel Discussion was held Thursday evening in the historic Pickering Barn, and a good time was had by all. The event has been held in the Issaquah Depot the last two years, but the popularity of the event has warranted a larger venue, and the Pickering Barn was perfect (with room to grow).
The keynote speech was delivered by Mary Lou Pauly, Mayor of Issaquah. The panel discussion was moderated by Doug McClelland, former DNR land manager, with the panel comprised of an august collection of local public land managers:
John Ernster, Cascade Foothills Area Manager, Washington State Parks
Katy Terry, Assistant Director, King County Parks and Recreation
Jeff Watling, Parks and Recreation Director, City of Issaquah
Laurie Benson, South Puget Sound Assistant Region Manager, Washington State Department of Natural Resources
Angie Feser, Parks and Recreation Director, City of Sammamish
