Eric Klein

Assistant Project Coordinator


Having grown up in the woods and on the lakes of western Michigan, it’s no surprise that Eric has found himself running volunteer programs in the most natural and remote corners of San Francisco (Lands End, Presidio, Fort Funston). After receiving his bachelor’s degree in classical music performance from the University of Michigan in 2004 (and since supplemented with years of volunteering in the park, interning at the San Francisco Botanical Garden, running his own California native gardening business, and taking countless classes in all aspects of the natural world), you can find him at Lands End, often performing experiments to assess the health effects of accordion music on newly-planted California coastal scrub ecosystems. He has been working with the San Francisco Stewardship team since 2010 and thoroughly loves working with his passionate coworkers, our dedicated volunteers, and our delightful little native plants.
