About the CEO

As an engineer for the State of California, Peggy led a major planning effort to identify critical steps for restoration of certain wetland types in the San Francisco Estuary, culminating in the production of the Baylands Ecosystem Habitat Goals and the Bayland Ecosystem Species and Community Profiles. In 2002, based on a decade of collaborative planning with all relevant federal, state, and local agencies, scientists, environmental organizations, and restoration advocates, Peggy launched Olofson Environmental, Inc. to take on one of the key first steps for restoration of the Estuary – eradication of invasive cordgrass from the tidal marshes.

From that beginning, OEI has expanded to take on projects within both the private and public sectors. Such projects have ranged from environmental assessment, permit acquisition and compliance, to design, construction, revegetation, and maintenance of large-scale habitat restoration projects.
