WHO WE ARE
JCLT is led 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 Sean Rowe (Board President), donna luckey (Board Vice-President), Chuck Powell (Board Treasurer), Cheryl Dillingham, Mark Fritzke, Kyle Sipes, and Colin Anderson.
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.
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.
Colin is a salmonid biologist with the goal of protecting and preserving the uniqueness of the Jacoby Creek Watershed for the benefit of people and nature.
