Bonnie Eyestone

Working Lands Conservation Director

I advance science on rangelands with ranchers, researchers, and conservation partners in studying ecological function on rangelands throughout California. My position includes helping to lead science and outreach efforts for our working lands programs with bay area partners, and facilitating integration and collaboration among our working lands efforts within Point Blue.

I was born and raised on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State where I grew up playing soccer, piano, exploring the outdoors and hiking in the Elwha River watershed. I studied forest ecology and earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Environmental Science and Resource Management at the University of Washington’s College of Forest Resources (now College of the Environment). After graduating college I have mostly spent my career restoring vital riparian habitat for salmon in the Puget Sound and Washington Coast river systems and working with ranchers in the Southern Sierra Nevada foothills in Point Blue’s Rangeland Watershed Initiative. I am excited to continue growth within Point Blue and promote excellence in land stewardship.

In my spare time I am often found near a river, lake or coastline, hiking in the mountains, baking, or making music.
