|Meet Matt Gerhart
Program Manager, State Coastal Conservancy
Matt Gerhart has been working with the State Coastal Conservancy (SCC) for over a decade where he now serves as Program Manager of the San Francisco Bay Area. If you have been at any Conservancy meetings in the last few years, you have most likely met him! In his current role, Matt oversees a wide range of SCC land protection, restoration, access and climate adaptation projects, as well anything related to the San Francisco Bay Restoration Authority. In addition to attending what he called “boatloads” of daily meetings, he is also in the enviable position of occasionally having a work day include getting out by boat, bike or foot, to see some the Bay Area’s most spectacular and/or challenged natural spaces.
As an important partner to the SFBJV, Matt has been instrumental in helping us meet our habitat goals with his valuable input serving on both our Management Board and Conservation Delivery Committee as well as by encouraging SCC staff to get involved in other JV working committees. In addition, he has recommended funding for partner projects and has also directly supported SFBJV efforts such as our design review program. Best of all, Matt is a pleasure to work with, offering a unique blend of calm, kindness and clarity to group “think” and discussions.
