Historical Ecology and Traditional Ecological Knowledge lecture

Chuck Striplen is a member of the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band, the first people of the Monterey Bay region. He holds an M.S. and Ph.D. in Environmental Science, Policy and Management from UC Berkeley. Chuck is a past board member of the California Indian Basketweavers Association and is active in efforts to increase tribal participation in the study and stewardship of California’s watersheds. After working for many years as an ecologist, planner, and wildlife biologist, Chuck came to the San Francisco Estuary Institute in 2002 to join their nascent Historical Ecology team. Since that time, he has helped expand the work and prominence of the discipline of historical ecology in California, and is now working to create greater alignment between mechanisms designed to protect natural and cultural resources in California.
