CALIFORNIA INVASIVE SPECIES ADVISORY COMMITTEE MEMBER
Daniel (Dan) Gluesenkamp

Executive Director
The California Native Plant Society
Sacramento, CA

Background

Daniel Gluesenkamp, Executive Director of the California Native Plant Society (CNPS), works with staff and chapters of the CNPS to protect, understand, and celebrate California’s native flora. Dan first fell in love with California plants (and CNPS) as a student at UC Santa Cruz, and he earned his Ph.D. at UC Berkeley studying the ecology of native and invasive thistles. He previously worked as Executive Director of The Calflora Database, where he led development of exciting new tools for conservation and research, and as Director of Habitat Protection and Restoration for Audubon Canyon Ranch’s 30 preserves.

Dan’s history with California plant conservation and research includes on-the-ground experience restoring native habitat, and experimental research on invasive turkey impacts, nitrogen deposition, and sierra meadows. Dan is a founder and past president of the California Invasive Plant Council, co-founder of the Bay Area Early Detection Network (BAEDN), and in 2009 discovered a presumed-extinct Franciscan manzanita plant growing on a traffic island at the Golden Gate Bridge.

Conflict of Interest Statement

I have no personal financial interest in any actions that CISAC is likely to consider.
