San Mateo County hires first natural resource manager
February 08, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Ramona Arechiga

For the first time in its 90-year history, San Mateo County has hired a natural resource manager to help with its system of parks, volunteers and affiliated agencies.

Ramona Arechiga comes to the county after recently moving to the Bay Area from Oregon where she received a master’s degree in forest resources from Oregon State University and worked for nonprofits. She also worked in Ethiopia with the Peace Corps coordinating multicultural teams to implement public planting programs in Bale Mountains National Park.

Arechiga’s new position works within the newly re-established Parks Department which includes 19 parks, three regional trails and other trails encompassing 16,183 acres.

The Redondo Beach native said she dreamed of working in the coast range of northern California as a forest ecologist and resource manager.

“The position of natural resource manager ... provides an opportunity to realize that dream,” Arechiga said in a prepared statement.

When not promoting the county’s natural resources, Arechiga spends time with her husband, dog and two cats.
