PPF Board of Directors 2018 

David Hall – President

David's interest in native plants and ecosystems was enhanced during his time at college in Hawai’i. David has been involved with the Palouse Prairie Foundation since its founding.

Elisabeth Brackney – Secretary

 Elisabeth has lived in Moscow for the past 27 years. Before retiring a couple years ago, she worked for the Nez Perce Tribe as a Wetlands Ecologist. A large part of her work involved native plant identification. She was particularly intrigued by remnants of native prairie she would find next to some of the wetlands she assessed. As a board member, she hopes to help protect and restore these special ecosystems on the Palouse.

Joan Folwell – Treasurer

Joan moved to the Palouse in 1968 from the prairies of Illinois. She is trained as a zoologist and is an enthusiastic, but undisciplined and naive, gardener. Joan currently serves as treasurer of the Palouse Prairie Foundation.

Jim Sayre
