Building a Great Team

Paul Vienneau and Stacy Wear join the Land Trust staff


Our staff is growing! The Shasta Land Trust is thrilled to add two highly qualified professionals to our staff, both whom started with us in December. Please join us in welcoming Paul Vienneau and Stacy Wear.


Paul Vienneau,
Conservation Project Manager

Paul Vienneau, our conservation project manager, was born and raised in Shasta County. He returned over 1 year ago with his fiancée after being away for nearly 14 years. He graduated from the University of California, Santa Cruz with a degree in Politics in 2005 and after enjoying the beautiful landscape of the Santa Cruz Mountains he moved to Southern California to pursue his law degree at the University of La Verne, College of Law. After graduating in 2013 with his Juris Doctor he pursued a Master’s Degree in Public Administration. Rather than pursue a career as a practicing attorney he focused a great deal of his time during his master’s program on water conservation, technology/innovation and water ownership rights. Additionally, while in Southern California he worked at the City of Upland as a Water Conservation Intern and conducted a large amount of research concerning water regulation/ownership as a graduate assistant at the University of La Verne.

When not working, Paul enjoys spending quality time with his fiancee and family who still reside in Shasta County. After being out of the area for over 14 years he is once again enjoying the beautiful landscape that is Northern California by hiking and traveling to the hidden gems that surround the area.  As a way to burn off stress he enjoys working out at Northstate Crossfit where he has found personal growth, new friends, and wellness.  While he may have been gone for a while he is excited to get involved in the region and looks forward to playing a role in the Shasta Land Trust and all the work they do to preserve the place he calls home. 

Stacy Wear,
Communications & Engagement Coordinator 

Stacy Wear, our communications & engagement coordinator, is a fairly new resident to Redding and absolutely loves the beautiful scenery and endless outdoor adventures the area has to offer. She graduated from California State University Chico with a degree in Recreation Administration. Her work experience includes coordinating events for Chico Velo Cycling Club and leading marketing and community outreach for Whole Foods Market when she lived in the Bay Area.

Outside of work Stacy enjoys spending time with her husband and two dogs; they go on frequent hiking and camping trips. In addition to spending time with her family, Stacy really enjoys cycling, working out, cooking, and cheering for her favorite sports teams. She is excited to join the staff of Shasta Land Trust and is looking forward to being a part of an organization that is committed to protecting open space.
