Faith Kroschel, District Manager

My name is Faith Kroschel and I was hired as the District Manager for the Longmont and Boulder Valley Conservation Districts in October of 2018. 

I was born and raised in Colorado. I also received my Bachelors degree from Colorado State University- GO Rams!    

I have had the privilege of living in the mountain west for my entire life and have loved the varied landscape of plains, mountains, and high desert environments. I grew up in Eastern Colorado where my family utilize the many programs available through the Conservation District- so yes, I've planted a few tree rows for windbreaks. Working in the land grant university Extension system as a 4-H or Family Consumer Science agent has given me ample experience working with the public and local government on a variety of issues. 

My husband and I with our two boys enjoy all the area has to offer.  We particularly like to take part in cultural events, live music, and camping (especially if we get to go in our vintage camper) with family and friends. 

 I'm excited to start my journey here with the Conservation Districts and look forward to working with many of you soon!

Summer 2018  Mediterranean Sage project

Sara McLaughlin - Summer Field Coordinator 

Jayden Imes - Summer Technician 

The responsibilities of the Field Coordinator are to work with landowners in the Mediterranean Sage area of Boulder County to continue to eradicate the noxious weed.  There are about 1300 acres of land between US Highway 36 and US Highway 119 that have some infestation of the Med Sage. 

Mediterranean Sage (Salvia Aethiopis) is a List A noxious weed that is from the mint family and is an escaped ornamental.  Med Sage is a short-lived perennial that in its first year is a rosette of 7-10 leaves and the second year shoots a "candelabra" 2-3 feet tall with showy white flowers.  The plant flowers in May and June with seed set in July and August.  The seeds (up to 100,000) are dropped as the flower head breaks off and becomes a tumbleweed.  The noxious weed invades pasture, rangeland, meadows, riparian areas, rights-of-way and other open areas.  The tumbleweed is often caught in yucca plants or fence rows so you may find a large infestation of plants in those areas.

If you see any of the plants on your property, please give the district a call at (720) 378-5521 so that we can check out the plants and help with eradicating them from your property.



 

 

Faith Kroschel has been with the Districts since October 2018.

Brian Walton was hired as the District Conservation Technician in August 2018.

The Districts also hire a summer field coordinator for their Mediterranean Sage project.
