Peter Colby

Peter joined Western Rivers Conservancy in 2015 as Project Manager, based in San Francisco and focusing on projects in California. He previously practiced environmental and real estate law for over 20 years and, between 2003 and 2015, directed land acquisition for Save the Redwoods League and a Bay Area water district. Peter holds a B.A. in Economics from the University of Virginia and a J.D. from Berkeley Law, University of California.

When not in the office or out on project lands, he enjoys fly fishing, skiing, and traveling with his wife and (when possible) two grown daughters.
