Port Costa Society Conservation Society Board

Board of Directors

Port Costa Conservation Society is governed by a board of five individuals who are elected from
the Society membership.  Board officers are elected by PCCS members in biennial elections
and serve for four-year terms.  The current board members are:


Jeff Wilson, Chairperson

Jeff applies the experience gained in his 38-year career with the East Bay Regional Park District as Tilden Park Manager of two diverse park management units, and in his final position as Chief of Park Operations.  His responsibilities included managing contracts, personnel and budgets in excess of 34 million dollars. Jeff has been on the PCCS board over 11 years since his retirement in 2012.

Janet Wood, Vice Chairperson

From the first time she drove into town 32 years ago Janet knew it was where she wanted to be! Once moved in and settled, it was joining the long-ago Saturday morning recycling crew that made her really feel part of the special community of Port Costa. That, and serving on the Volunteer Fire Department. When home, she is most happy puttering in the garden.  Retired from a career of Project Management for software development, Janet’s other passion has been Retriever training.  Janet joined the PCCS board in 2021.

Ridge Greene, consultant, and advisor to the Board

Although he retired from active board membership in 2021, Ridge continues to play an important
role in the PCCS. Ridge joined the board in the mid-1980s before the Society assumed
ownership and responsibility for the Port Costa School in 1988. He was primary in saving the
historic but physically neglected and dilapidated building then and has continued as PCCS Chair
to lead restoration efforts up to the present. A Senior Project Manager and licensed general
contractor for RGM Kramer Inc. and a skilled carpenter, Ridge’s experience has been an asset in
planning and oversight of construction work for the Society.  He is also well versed in State
Historic Preservation Office requirements, highly valuable in view of the historic status of the
Port Costa School.

On November 9, 2021, U.S. Congressional Representative Mike Thompson presented Ridge
with a Congressional Record Statement.  This was to honor Ridge's many years of service to the
community of Port Costa and to the Port Costa Conservation Society, for the restoration of the
historic town school, and for his work for environmental causes including one of the first
sustainable recycling programs in Northern California.  Rep. Thompson read the Statement to
Ridge on the steps of the Port Costa School.
