The Board of Directors is very pleased to announce the promotion of Paul Vienneau to Executive Director of Shasta Land Trust!
The Shasta Land Trust conserves the places you love – for future generations to enjoy. Stay tuned everyone - there are exciting things in the future for conservation programs in the North State!
Paul Vienneau started with Shasta Land Trust in December 2015 as Conservation Project Manager.
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.
Paul is eager to work towards increased collaboration and growth in the community over the coming weeks and months and looks forward to meeting all of you soon! Stay tuned for exciting new projects in the future!
