Jay Nelson

With the Greenway Trust since 2021

Jay is returning for a second year with the Greenway Trust Restoration Crew in the role of Assistant Lead for the 2022 field season. They previously served with the Washington Conservation Corps for two years after receiving a degree in Ecology and Evolution from the University of California, Santa Cruz. Jay returned to the West Coast for college after spending several years in Wisconsin and is especially interested in serpentine soils, plant pathology, and promoting traditional land management. When they aren’t in the field, Jay enjoys urban walks, embroidery, and trying to someday find a gnome plant in the wild.
