The Employee Handbook is a more thorough take on what we CD Employees do.  However, for those new to the office, we wanted a more succinct “First Week on the Job” crash course.  Tenlee Atchison at the Cascade Conservation District put this together for the November 2020 EO Meeting as a draft.  After some edits were completed, here’s the final version.
