Isaiah Thalmayer

Senior Project Manager

As a Senior Project Manager at Point Blue my work focuses on overseeing restoration projects throughout the Bay Area, cultivating partnerships and inspiring collaboration. I lead the development of strategies and tools for Climate-smart restoration in riparian and transition zone habitats. I work closely with the Marin Resource Conservation District, Marin Agricultural Land Trust and Marin Carbon Project to design and implement innovative projects that improve habitat, support farmers and sequester carbon.

As a member of the STRAW team since 2011 I’ve designed and implemented rural and urban restoration projects on streams and tidal marsh transition zones throughout the bay area, including at Tolay Lake Regional Park – STRAW’s largest riparian restoration project to date and one of the largest revegetation projects under way in Sonoma County. My work since 2011 has also involved expanding the STRAW program, including hiring and mentoring, business management, and fundraising.

I grew up in the Siskiyou Mountains of southern Oregon and earned my B.S. at Warren Wilson College, a work college in Asheville, North Carolina, where I completed an honors thesis on plant phylogenetics and led the Native Plant Crew where students sourced and propagated more than 75 species of native grasses and flowers for restoration on campus.

When I’m not at work you might find me in the surf or hiking with my dog, Mari.
