The Washington Community Forestry Council recently welcomed several new members to its ranks. We will introduce them in upcoming editions. This month we welcome Lisa Ciecko, who represents Non-Profit/Volunteer groups on the Council.

Lisa Ciecko works as a Green Cities Project Manager at Forterra, a non-profit in Washington State that focuses on building healthy communities and conserving important lands. Her work focuses on quantifying urban forest structure and ecosystem service values, as well as developing tools for urban forest stewardship efforts in the Puget Sound Region as part of the Green Cities Program. Lisa has worked in the non-profit sector for ten years. She received her Master of Science from the University of Washington’s Center for Urban Horticulture and is a certified arborist.
