The Staff

Francisco Gomez

Field Supervisor

Francisco grew up in Hollister, CA, a small town on the central coast. He enjoys nature and anything to do with arts, music, and creativity. He is a big eater, so he enjoys visiting different restaurants and likes to cook for himself and his friends.

His first real exposure to the outdoors and nature was in elementary school when his whole class went to Pinnacles National Park, where his curiosity and wonder about the natural world began. He went to community college in Gilroy, California, and received his associate degree in Biology. His first experience working outdoors was in his summer internship with STEM which partnered with Canada de Los Osos Ecological Reserve to develop a poster presentation to share with his peers. He then moved to Long Beach to attend the California State University of Long Beach. He graduated with a Marine Biology major in the spring of 2020.

In Francisco’s spare time, he enjoys being with his family and friends while sharing a laugh.
