Ross Perry, Project Manager
Growing up in Yreka, CA, Ross developed a love for the outdoors and an interest in conservation through hiking and skiing in the mountains of Siskiyou County, and spending summers guiding whitewater rafting trips in the Klamath River watershed. After graduating from CSU Chico in 2013 with a degree in Music with special interest in jazz drumming, Ross moved back to Siskiyou County and started working for the Shasta Valley Resource Conservation District. There he assisted with water quality monitoring and riparian restoration on the Shasta River. Ross joined the WSRCD team in September of 2015 and has enjoyed the diverse range of projects he is exposed to as well as the ability to leave his mark on Shasta County through the RCD’s conservation efforts. He loves his work because he gets to regularly get outside and become intimately familiar with the Shasta County resources he is working to conserve.
Analia Bertucci, Project Manager
Having grown up in California and Asia, Analia’s interest in ecology was fostered as being witness to the challenges of coexistence between urban living and the natural environment. After receiving a B.S. in Biology from Eastern Connecticut State University, Analia worked with NRCS-Connecticut before returning to California, promoting the importance of conservation and restoration through education and outreach, and working with farmers, landowners, legislators, educators, and conservationists. Analia has a passion for travel and encourages others to experience the diverse landscape of the earth. Aside from travel, her interests include disc golf, hiking, snowboarding, brewing, and roller derby.
