Chris Robertson became a board member for the Shasta Valley RCD in December 2011. He owns and works an agricultural property in the Shasta Valley. His family roots are from North Eastern California that now span six generations. As a youth Chris spent each summer working the family ranch in Modoc County. His grandfather taught resource conservation to his family as a way of life. He worked the farm and served as the president of the Soil Conservation District for decades. Chris says: “I have been watching resource issues unfold for decades in the Klamath Basin. I believe that conservation issues in Siskiyou County are being watched by a great many interested parties around the world, and understand the gravity of the work of the SVRCD. ” Prior to purchasing the farm in Montague, Chris worked in the information technology (IT) world in the San Francisco Bay Area.
