Langley resident joins board | NOTABLE
Antonia Palkovic has been appointed as a supervisor and will fill a midterm vacancy on the board for the Whidbey Island Conservation District.

She interned and worked as an assistant farm manager on several organic vegetable farms in the Catskills and Finger Lakes areas of New York before pursuing graduate studies at the University of California, Davis, where she specialized in soil science and agro-ecology.
