Christopher Hauser, Contributor
Full name:
Christopher Hauser
City, state, country:
Monterey, CA, USA

I am a husband to a lovely wife and a father of two wonderful children. I'm active in my community in Monterey, California, and I do volunteer work with the local chapter of the California Native Plant Society and I am active in our Shoreline Community Church.

I am a professional land steward, so I manage natural areas to keep their lands and waters natural and healthy. My emphasis is on plants and vegetation, but recently I have started working with mammals, birds and insects. I work for the Center for Natural Lands Management, where I help manage nature preserves in the southern San Joaquin Valley.
