As the Mitigation Lead, Camille works in numerous capacities supporting the Plas Newydd Conservation Program with her organization and tracking skills, including office administration and management support. Camille brings her attention to detail to her lead role of coordinating and contributing to the production of technical documents related to the Wapato Valley Mitigation and Conservation Bank development, certification, permitting, construction, and monitoring process; other field data collection and analysis efforts; website content and other marketing materials; and outreach. Camille has been on staff since October of 2014. Prior to her engagement at Plas Newydd Farm, Camille worked for over a decade as a consultant for Stillwater Sciences with a focus on large-scale habitat enhancement, river restoration, watershed assessment, and hydroelectric projects throughout the Pacific Northwest. Camille’s role required extensive collaboration with subconsultants, private organizations, landowners, non-profit organizations, Tribes, and staff from numerous local, state, federal agencies. Camille also served for 8 years as a Board Director and Treasurer for the Salmonid Restoration Federation, a non-profit organization aimed at helping stream restoration practitioners advance the art and science of restoration through education services for landowners, community-based restoration organizations, consultancies, and state and federal agencies. Camille earned her degree in Fisheries Biology in 2003 from Humboldt State University. When not at the farm relishing her work, Camille enjoys the Portland-area fusion of cosmopolitan delights and natural attractions and can be found anywhere from a bumping downtown dance floor to a remote headwaters swimming hole.
