The Staff

Scott Couture

Preserve Program Manager

Scott grew up in the rural west Sonoma County town of Sebastopol, surrounded by vineyards and apple orchards.  Scott pursued an Environmental Studies degree, with a focus and Sustainability and Social Justice at San Francisco State University.

While the urban landscape was exciting, it was the rugged mountains of California’s Eastern Sierra that cemented his passion of the outdoors and fostered the satisfaction of working with the land.  With 8 seasons of wilderness trail construction and maintenance for the US Forest Service to guide his professional journey, The Land Conservancy provides for an excellent blend of work, play and a sense of place in San Luis Obispo’s wild spaces and rural landscapes.

Scott can usually be found mountain biking and running our local trails, surfing a wave or two, and exploring the Central Coast with his wife and his three children.
