On Friday, June 14, MALT Executive Director Jamison Watts will speak at Marin Conservation League’s Business-Environment Breakfast at the Embassy Suites in San Rafael, 101 McInnis Parkway.
The first farmland trust in the nation, Marin Agricultural Land Trust has protected over 45,000 acres of Marin’s agricultural lands since its founding in 1980 by Ellen Straus and Phyllis Faber. Jamison Watts assumed leadership of MALT in January, taking over the post held for many years by Bob Berner.
Jamison will discuss the new mandatory agricultural use provisions in MALT’s easements. There will be an opportunity for the audience to ask questions after the presentation.
Prior to joining MALT, Jamison Watts served as the Executive Director of the Northern California Regional Land Trust for six years and as a wildlife biologist and environmental consultant for more than a decade. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Biology with an emphasis in Conservation Biology from the University of California at Davis and a master’s degree in Biological Sciences from California State University at Chico. He is a recipient of the Jack Rawlins Ecology and Conservation Award and the Research and Creativity Award, both from California State University at Chico.
