Joan Schwan

Joan Schwan, M.S., Principal Ecologist, has worked on native plant research and restoration, and natural resource planning, since 1992. Her current work at PCI focuses on natural resource assessment and planning for parks and preserves around the North Bay, and on planning and implementation of habitat restoration projects throughout California. Joan also leads the science group at PCI. Whether by addressing climate change in park planning, identifying the underlying processes that maintain biodiversity in a preserve, or by carefully considering the impacts of restoration methods, Joan aims to bring a broad ecological perspective to her work.
