Placer Land Trust is has announced the addition of Christine Pieper to the board of directors. Pieper grew up as a farmer’s daughter in Maryland with parents who were always committed to conserving their land, placing their farm in a permanent agricultural conservation easement. Well-versed in nonprofit  fundraising, Pieper previously worked with the American Farmland Trust and the Potomac Conservancy. When she and her husband moved to Placer County in 2014, she immediately gravitated toward Placer Land Trust.

“I’ve worked as a volunteer for Placer Land Trust for the past few years, and really enjoyed getting to know the management team and some of the board members,” Said Pieper. “I understand their mission and goals, and I am eager to apply my skills and experience to advance this worthy organization.”

“Christine is going to be a real asset to the Placer Land Trust board,” said Fred Yeager, board president. “Her leadership experience in fundraising for nonprofits, combined with her love for the outdoors, will help inspire others to want to protect our natural wonders, now forever.”

The Placer Land Trust board of directors meets at 6 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 11641 Blocker Drive, Suite 220, Auburn. Monthly board meetings are open to the public. For details, contact 530- 887-9222.
