Graham Wesolowski has been running around California’s wildlands from a young age and turned that into a career in landscape resilience beginning in 2009. In 2013, while a Master’s student at UCSB’s Bren School, he joined the Strategic Environmental Research Initiative for Wildfire and Climate Change. Beginning in 2015, he worked extensively on land conservation and stewardship efforts in the County as the Conservation Manager for the Land Trust for Santa Barbara County. His experience in landscape management and stewardship spans disciplines including steelhead restoration, large scale debris flow recovery and managing a commercial land-based aquaculture farm. He is currently the Executive Director of the non-profit Spatial Informatics Group – Natural Assets Laboratory and an incoming MBA student at the UC Davis Graduate School of Management. When he is not helping communities to become more resilient, Graham is surfing somewhere along the Central Coast, or taking his kids to the SB Zoo to see the lions.
