Steven Johnson

Biologist/Environmental Scientist


“Growing up along the Cosumnes River on the outskirts of Sacramento, I’ve always been keenly fascinated by the annual salmon migrations the area would see every winter and Spring. For as long as I can remember I’ve always known I wanted to become a biologist and worked hard to attain my bachelors in Marine Biology from UC Santa Cruz. I started shortly thereafter with California’s Fish & Wildlife, learning about the truly vast, diverse, and unique ecosystems within our borders.

Most recently, I had been working on a project monitoring steelhead trout populations in Southern California. I’m very excited to be starting with Creek Lands Conservation and begin working on habitat restoration projects in my home state. I aspire to bring forth the biggest issues of conservation for the central coast to the public eye via engaging storytelling and public outreach all while gaining a thorough understanding of the constantly changing ecosystems.

Apart from work, I’m always trying to get outside in any manner possible: camping, hiking, skiing, occasionally surfing, and snorkeling. I’m an avid reader and have been journaling since I was young.”
