From 1965 until 2000, Mr. Watkins led the development of many of WLCAC’s programs and projects. During that time as well, Mr. Watkins owned and operated the Environmental Maintenance Company, a licensed landscape contracting firm with close to fifty employees. Today the business is operated by his wife, Janine. Mr. Watkins is a life-long resident of Watts in Central Los Angeles.
