Placer Land Trust is pleased to announce the election of Gregg McKenzie of Rocklin to its Board of Directors.
McKenzie is an independent consultant in restoration, mitigation, environmental permitting and land acquisition. His business, The McKenzie Land Company, is based in Rocklin. McKenzie is also a City of Rocklin planning commissioner, and a member of the Placer County Conservation Plan Biologic Working Group.
“My interest in the conservation and restoration of our environment began in my early childhood, fishing and hunting in the Sierra with my father and grandfather,” McKenzie said. “These early experiences piqued my educational interest in the environment and the positive role that we can play in its conservation, as well as the need for restoration resulting from recent and historical impacts.”
He is a graduate of CSU Chico with a degree in Environmental Geography and Planning. His work experience includes assisting Gov. Pete Wilson’s office with the California Environmental Quality Act and environmental planning in the Office of Planning and Research. He also was a planner for the City of Chico and the County of Siskiyou.
