South Lake Tahoe, CA—Long time Tahoe RCD employee Kim Boyd was recently promoted to District Manager. Mrs. Boyd has extensive experience in resource management and project implementation in and around the Lake Tahoe Basin. From her beginnings as an Environmental Scientist in 2001, Ms. Boyd led core Tahoe RCD projects involving backyard conservation, terrestrial invasive weeds, and ecosystem restoration. Once promoted to Program Manager in 2009, Kim was a catalyst for developing successful partnerships and practices for the Aquatic Invasive Species program, including both prevention strategies and control work around the Lake.
Kim Boyd’s enthusiasm and dedication to conservation is evident not only with her ability to have a vision for Tahoe’s future, but in her daily tasks for which she is meticulous and engaged. Holly Nattress, Tahoe RCD’s longest standing employee stated, “It is a real honor to have a leader who has performed almost every job at the Tahoe RCD, Kim has both the understanding and the knowledge of what it takes to make us successful at all levels.”
In addition to the District’s already successful programs, Ms. Boyd is also steering the newly formed Regional Stormwater Monitoring Program with the leadership from key staff. “This is truly an exciting time at the District, we have strong partnerships, and we are implementing world class programs”, stated Kim Gorman, Director of Programs. The Tahoe RCD as a whole feels there is still so much work to preserve and protect Lake Tahoe’s natural resources and Kim Boyd is the right person to lead the way.
