LAKE STEVENS — It’s not uncommon for conservationists, farmers, tribes and other natural resources stakeholders to take opposite sides on environmental issues.
That is, until Monte Marti gets involved.
In his 20-year tenure as the district manager at the Snohomish Conservation District, Marti has built a reputation as a relentless collaborator with an uncanny ability to bring different and often competing groups together.
On Aug. 9, Marti will retire from his position with the district.
“He has been instrumental in bringing the farming community, tribes, and regulatory agencies to the table to collaborate,” said Dan Bartelheimer, president of the Snohomish County Farm Bureau.
