Craig Williams is applying more than 20 years of resource agency, consulting, and postgraduate experience investigating rivers, streams, and riparian areas. Most recently Craig served as the task lead for an ecosystem restoration benefits assessment of sites in the San Joaquin River basin and the Yolo Bypass to support the 2017 Update to the Central Valley Flood Protection Plan (CVFPP). Craig has experience with both site design work, such as channel and floodplain concept development for aquatic and riparian habitat creation along the San Joaquin and Los Angeles rivers, as well as high level planning projects, including the CVFPP and multiple Habitat Conservation Plans. Through a graduate assistantship at Virginia Tech, he investigated associations of riparian condition and fishes in tributaries of the Nottoway River. Craig is a native of the SF Bay Area and earned his B.S. from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, focusing on freshwater ecology.
