WHO WE ARE
JCLT is lead by Executive Director, Stephanie Mietz. She joined JCLT in 2018 bringing with her more than a decade's experience in conservation, preservation, and adaptive management. Stephanie's stewardship and leadership skills successfully move our organizational mission towards fulfillment.
JCLT’s Board of Directors guides the organization to operational and financial sustainability. Board members include Cheryl Dillingham (Board President), Sean Rowe (Board Vice-President), Chuck Powell (Board Treasurer), Colin Mateer (Board Secretary), Mark Fritzke, Dustin Brooks, Ben Goulart, donna luckey, Emelia Berol, and Kyle Sipes.
Cheryl's goal is to help protect and preserve JCLT’s land holdings in perpetuity by supporting good land management practices and strong financial health.
Sitting on the JCLT Board since 1998, Mark has helped guide JCLT on many aspects of acquiring and developing Kokte Ranch and other properties and easements.
Ben joined JCLT in 2018 to help protect, preserve, and maintain the beautiful creeks and forests of the Jacoby Creek watershed for his daughter to explore, and future generations to enjoy.
Her awareness of land trusts as an important model for land stewardship started in the mid-1970s with her graduate studies, and donna has pursued that interest ever since.
