Environmental Horticulture Advisor, UCCE Marin & Sonoma Counties
I work on almost any plant that isn't grown for food or fiber. Much of my job involves assisting landscape professionals and pest control professionals manage pests and diseases in an environmentally sustainable manner. I also work with small parcel forestland owners to help them manage their land in ways that help keep forests healthy and fire-safe, and work on water quality and water conservation issues.
