About Peter Warner

Peter Warner has been involved in the study of plants and ecology for about 40 years, coinciding with his westward migration from East Coast roots. While some evidence exists for his earlier interest in plant life, the fossil record is incomplete. During his Precambrian era working in urban forestry and landscaping in the Bay Area, he became absorbed in the study of wild plants in California and the American West, and eventually earned a B. S. and then an M. A. in Biology (Ecology) from Sonoma State University. Over the past 25 years, he’s taught several botanically oriented classes and workshops, and organized hundreds of trips throughout California and beyond to explore ecological diversity. During this time, he’s been active in a number of environmental organizations, primarily focused on learning and teaching about the critical importance of intact ecosystems and ecological processes to the long-term health of all the living.

Since moving on from about ten years working in national and state parks, Peter has provided botanical and ecological consulting services to several conservation organizations, public agencies, and private land managers. He continues to offer, somewhat sporadically, workshops and classes, and revels in spontaneous opportunities to share wonder and musings about life’s rich pageant. For relief from more mundane pursuits, he spends several days a week contemplating nature, on his own or in the company of other naturalists and thinkers. He’s discovered that nature provides no dearth of material from which to harvest enlightenment.
