Diego Cordero is the Lead Environmental Technician for the Santa Ynez Chumash Environmental Office. The programs he manages are diverse and range from zero waste to water quality monitoring to running the tribal native plant nursery.

He graduated from Humboldt State University with a BA in Native American Studies, initially intending to develop his understanding of Federal Indian Law, but found his passion in native plants and the relationships native people have developed with them over the millennia.

By restoring traditional practices and bridging them with today’s knowledge and techniques, Diego hopes to improve the well-being of both people and the land in the part of the world that he calls home.
