Arwen Bird, Principal

My ancestors settled in the Pacific Northwest for many reasons, among them the beauty and rich biodiversity of this region. My maternal great grandfather built brick ovens to process coal in Washington State, promoting carbon inputs into the atmosphere. A century later, my father worked  throughout the western US to remediate soils contaminated by toxins, including fossil fuels. Drawing on my connections with ancestors living and past, I use the knowledge, skill and experiences I have gained to promote healing,  cultural, economic and ecological health for generations to come.
