Camptonville Community Partnership is excited to announce the newest member of the CCP team, Pamela (Pam) Cook! Pam will work as the Project Coordinator under the recently awarded CA Energy Commission EPIC Grant for the Forest Biomass Business Center. Pam will work with the CCP to administer the $4.99 million dollar grant.
Pam has lived in Dobbins since 1999 and lives on her grandparent’s property. Two months later the Pendola fire destroyed much of our community. Her property was also devastated (all except the house) and since that time she has been working to return/ improve her property to a natural balance.
Pam earned her Bachelor of Science in Education degree from Northern Illinois University in 1974 and has been working with children and families since that time as a teacher, social worker, vocational counselor, Program Manager, and Executive Director. Pam retired in 2018 after working with Yuba County Children and Adult Protective Services for 19 years.
Local volunteer activities have included secretary for the Dobbins-Oregon House Community Action Committee (DOACT) and bookkeeper for the Dobbins Volunteer Fire Department. She has been a CalFire Volunteer in Prevention (VIP) doing fire watch at Oregon Peak every Sunday since 2000. She is also a Council of Directors member for the Yuba Environmental Sciences Charter Academy and an active participant with the Yuba Watershed Protection and Fire Safe Council.
She looks forward to working with Camptonville Community Partnership in bringing the Camptonville Forest Biomass Center to fruition, knowing that it will help our forests while bringing energy, jobs and businesses to our community.
