Jill Silver, founder of 10,000 Years Institute, has been recognized for her work on invasive plants in habitat areas on the Olympic Peninsula. See this Seattle Times article by Linda Mapes.

Mapes writes about Jill’s “Pulling Together in Restoration” project, a two-year state grant of the Washington Coast Restoration Initiative and other support, to deploy a crew of 25 people, with family-wage jobs, to protect salmon habitat in what the writer calls “a gold standard.” Thanks to Jill for her leadership as an OFCO Board member, for representing OFCO in the Olympic Peninsula Forest Collaborative, and for protecting our Olympic Peninsula habitat.
