San Juan County Land Bank Lopez Preserve steward retires

Submitted by San Juan County Land Bank

As of June 1, San Juan County Land Bank Lopez Preserve Steward Tim Clark will be turning in his keys to the county truck and happily returning to his little blue pick up. Clark’s entry into retirement will give him the opportunity to dedicate more time to personal projects, like finding creative solutions for what other people consider trash.

Clark has been instrumental in many land bank projects over the last decade including the acquisitions of a conservation easement on the old Kjargaard farm, the new preserve, temporarily-named Lopez Channel, as well as management of all the Lopez Preserves, including Lopez Hill, which was leased in 2009 and soon to be owned by the Land Bank outright.

Clark’s quick wit and thoughtful nature will be greatly missed in staff meetings and beyond. Join land bank staff in wishing Clark a fruitful retirement on May 30, at high noon, in Odlin Park. In Lopezian tradition, it will be a potluck to outdo any potluck before it.
