Matt Freitas

Associate Director of Headwaters Conservation

I have worked on riparian, wetland, and floodplain restoration projects in Northern California for the last 10 years. Most recently, I worked for the Truckee River Watershed Council. There I led several watershed assessment and mountain meadow restoration projects. Previously, I’ve worked as a restoration ecologist at a design-build firm and several other non-profit organizations in the Sierra Nevada foothills.
